COLUMBUS – Rep. Richard D. Brown (D-Canal Winchester) announced today that the state Controlling Board approved several major items, including $1.3 million to support additional payroll costs, utility costs, and federal repayments incurred at Air National Guard Wings at Rickenbacker, located in House District 20, Toledo, Mansfield, and Springfield.

“The funds released today will help keep Rickenbacker running smoothly, and it will save jobs,” said Rep. Brown. “I appreciate the continued support of the National Guard, the airport, and firefighters, as well as investment into our House District 20 community.”

The $1.3 million approved today will help maintain current operational levels at the Air National Guard Wings, including military and civilian commercial flight operations at three of the facilities. This funding will affect more than 140 state firefighters and employees, preventing staff reductions at the Wings.
