CHICAGO -- The Ohio Tuition Trust Authority and the Ohio treasurer's office agreed Friday to include the state's first college saver bonds in an upcoming $120 million general obligation bond issue.

"The bonds will help build Ohio," said State Treasurer Mary Ellen Withrow in a press release. "Families can build for the future education of their children, and the state can help communites use the bonds to build roads, bridges, and make other local improvements."
