Senate Republicans discussed priorities
for the state’s two-year operating budget (Am. Sub. H.B. 166
) in a recent press conference. The budget is one of the most significant pieces of legislation the Senate works on during the two-year legislative cycle as it deals with all state operations, from education to taxes to healthcare and more.
“The budget is an opportunity to invest in Ohioans and in the priorities they’ve asked us to work on for them,” said Senate President Larry Obhof (R-Medina). “Our role in the legislature is to ensure wise stewardship of your tax dollars, responsibly investing in critical services, while seeking ways to make government efficient and accountable to the taxpayer.”
“I’m proud of the meaningful investments the Senate makes in our families and communities,” added Senator Matt Dolan (R-Chagrin Falls), Finance Chair.
