Gov. George V. Voinovich has signed a bill that earmarks $50 million to shrink the gap between Ohio's rich and poor school districts.

The law allows for the expenditure of the $50 million in fiscal 1993, which began July 1. The legislature had set aside the money last year at the governor's request when the two-year state budget was enacted. Most of the $50 million will be distributed next month to 218 of the state's poorest school districts.
