Senate Leaders Issue Statement on State Budget Negotiations
June 29, 2019
COLUMBUS—Senate President Larry Obhof (R-Medina) and Minority Leader Kenny Yuko (D-Richmond Heights) today issued the following statement:
"From the start of this budget process, the Senate has been steadfast in its commitment to the people of Ohio. Members from both sides of the aisle worked to support historic investments in Ohio's children, families and workforce. We are proud of what we accomplished over a relatively short timeframe, leading our members to cast a rare, unanimous vote for a budget bill that we believe reflects the priorities of Ohioans.
Today's interim budget maintains the funding of programs and services. We are committed to reaching an agreement soon on the new budget plan, working with the Administration and the House of Representatives."
