State Representative Haraz N. Ghanbari (R-Perrysburg) announced Friday a scheduled public town hall meeting in Bowling Green, Monday, Feb. 24, to discuss House Bill 305, also known as the Cupp-Patterson Education Funding Bill.
Representative Ghanbari will begin the town hall at 6:00 p.m. at Bowling Green High School located at 530 West Poe Road. Residents of Wood County and others are invited to attend and discuss the Cupp-Patterson education funding proposal. Rep. John Patterson (D-Jefferson), the bill’s joint sponsor, is also scheduled to participate.
“The education of our students directly and indirectly affects all Ohioans,” said Ghanbari. “School funding is complex. I wanted to provide an opportunity for dialogue with our constituents as my colleagues and I work through a deliberate and complex legislative process."
House Bill 305 was introduced on June 26 by State Representatives Bob Cupp (R-Lima) and John Patterson and is currently undergoing hearings in the House Finance Committee.
