In a first-of-its-kind event, Gov. John Kasich signed a higher education bill into law in a ceremony at Buckeye Boys State Thursday.
"This is all about getting you on the right path and having a guiding star," Kasich said.
The bill - House Bill 484, the first higher education bill by State Rep. Tim Brown - authorizes community colleges to create a tuition guarantee program, through which schools can establish a tuition cost for incoming freshmen with the promise that the costs will not increase over the course of the student's time at the college.
It also establishes performance-based funding formulas for community colleges and technical centers, and creates a workgroup to examine financial aid options.

For the 37th year, more than 1,200 high school juniors have flocked to Bowling Green State University this week.
They've arrived not for summer classes or a sports camp, or even for a campus tour.
They're here to learn about becoming more engaged citizens.
"What we hope is that they will have a deeper appreciation for public service," said Gerald White, director of the American Legion Buckeye Boys State, which began its eight-day run at the university on Sunday.
"We will guarantee them they'll leave here with a deeper understanding of how the levels of Ohio government work than 75 percent of the general population of this state."

Perrysburg Twp. considers 3 levies PDF Print E-mail

LIME CITY - Perrysburg Township trustees considered new money for the police department and the renewal of two fire levies at their department heads meeting Wednesday.
The board took no action but will likely do so next week as it mulls how to generate about $1 million for the police budget.
A new levy to generate that figure would likely be around 2.5 mills, though 3 mills is an option that would provide flexibility later in the term of the levy.
Last week, the board discussed a possible 2.6-mill levy, and their information suggested the owner of a $100,000 home would pay about $91 per year under that figure.
