COLUMBUS, OHIO – The Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board (CSRAB) is pleased to announce that the Ohio Statehouse specialty license plate is now on sale. House Bill 206 enacted by the Ohio General Assembly and signed into law by Governor Kasich in April of 2014 confirmed the Ohio Statehouse license plate. With the petition requirement completed and the license plate design approved, Ohio drivers can now show their support for the Ohio Statehouse. The new Ohio Statehouse license plate can be purchased at your local BMV Deputy Registrar License Agency or online at: http://bmv.ohio.gov/sp_ohio_statehouse.stm.
“The Ohio Statehouse has housed state government for the past 158 years, and since 1857, this magnificent Ohio Capitol has been revered and loved by the citizens of Ohio. The Ohio Statehouse license plate will give citizens the ability to preserve and protect the historical heritage of this great state through education and inspire future leaders of Ohio,” said William Carleton, CSRAB executive director. The legislation establishing the Ohio Statehouse license plate stipulates that $25 from every plate purchased will go to the capitol square renovation gift fund. This fund is used for purchasing art, museum collections, and funding the educational programs that over 60,000 Ohio school children enjoy every year here at the Ohio Statehouse.
As outlined in the agency’s founding legislation, CSRAB educates the tens of thousands of citizens that tour the Statehouse annually, facilitates the function of the Ohio General Assembly (OGA) and state government and protects the historical integrity of the Ohio Statehouse while at the same time, ensuring the safety of those who work in and visit Capitol Square.
Listed by the National Park Service as a National Historic Landmark, the Greek Revival grandeur of the Ohio Statehouse symbolizes the history, heritage, and future of this great State. Please, help support the educational programs offered at the Ohio Statehouse and through that support, help inspire the next generation of Ohio leaders.
