COLUMBUS – State Representative Haraz N. Ghanbari (R-Perrysburg) stood with members of the Ohio House in passing House Bill 377 Wednesday. The legislation includes $422 million in funding to the Office of Budget and Management to disburse to local governments in accordance with the American Rescue Plan.
