State Senator Tim Schaffer (R-Lancaster) introduced Senate Bill 333 this week, which will require the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) to make payments in lieu of taxes (PILT) to local governments and school districts to make up for tax revenue lost as the State of Ohio purchases the AEP ReCreation Land property.

“The AEP land acquisition is an incredible opportunity for the State of Ohio to expand its outdoor recreation assets for sportsmen and families alike,” Schaffer said. “I appreciate the efforts of AEP and ODNR to preserve this property for generations to come.”
