Infrastructure Reauthorization Process 

Historic Impact of the Infrastructure Program 

The current 10 year Authorization of the Infrastructure Funding granted by the Ohio Public Works Commission ends on July 1, 2025.   This is Program Year 39 of the program that was established in November 3, 1987.  During the 40 program cycles the Ohio Public Works Commission has distributed approximately $5.62 billion dollars of assistance.  During the most recent 10-year authorization period $2.2 billion in infrastructure funding has been disbursed to 4,291 infrastructure projects in 1,064 counties, townships, villages and cities throughout the 88 counties of Ohio.  These investments in local Ohio jurisdictions have leveraged approximately $6.345 billion in local and federal funds.   

General Assembly Initiated Constitutional Amendment Process 

The reauthorization of the Infrastructure Program is initiated by a joint Resolution of the Ohio General Assembly consisting of the Ohio House and Ohio Senate requiring a 3/5th vote for legislative passage. The next step is to certify the Resolution to the Secretary of State for the assignment to the Ballot Board for drafting of the ballot language.  At the same time the General Assembly may appoint members to prepare arguments for and against the no later than 80 days before the election.  The proposed legislation is published for three weeks in local media.  The issue is then slated for a primary or general election for the consideration of Ohio registered voters.  On the prescribed Election Day, the vote to determine passage for the Constitution Amendment to become part of the Ohio Constitution.  

Next Steps 

Check back for updates as the Reauthorization Process unfolds.  We hope to be able to provide more details on the legislative schedule this fall.
