State leaders have recommended $10 million in Ohio's capital budget to help preserve Union Terminal and Music Hall.

Each facility would receive $5 million for renovation and preservation.

"I am grateful that House and Senate leaders and Gov. (John) Kasich recognize the significance of Union Terminal and Music Hall to the local economy and quality of life. The $10 million commitment is an important piece of the funding needed to preserve these facilities and save them for future generations," said Robert A. "Bob" McDonald, chair of the Cultural Facilities Task Force and retired chairman, president and CEO of Procter & Gamble.

The task force is an independent group of business and construction experts that will recommend a plan for saving two of Cincinnati's most iconic public gathering places -- Union Terminal and Music Hall. The task force is examining renovation needs, operation and funding options.
