OHIO PRIMARY-PUBLIC WORKS
Renewal of public works program draws last-minute pitches from both sides of Ohio ballot issue

COLUMBUS, Ohio


The renewal of a public works program in Ohio is drawing last-minute pitches from both sides of the ballot issue.

Voters on Tuesday will decide whether to allow the state to borrow $1.875 billion over 10 years through the issuance of general obligation bonds.

The money would be used by the Ohio Public Works Commission to give grants and loans to local governments for capital improvement projects. Those could include updates to roadways, wastewater treatment systems and sanitary collection.

The Libertarian Party of Ohio and the conservative 1851 Center for Constitutional Law are urging residents to vote no. They argue the state should not borrow and spend money it doesn't have.

Republican Gov. John Kasich says the proposal will keep Ohio's economy growing by making needed investments in infrastructure.
