Today, the Ohio Senate gave its final approval on the state’s two-year, $69 billion budget bill, House Bill 166. Senator Fedor was the only member to vote no on the bill.
“While I worked hard for and celebrate the Toledo-area projects that received funding in the budget, I was unable to support this bill. I am disappointed that we have failed to take this opportunity to address the fundamental flaws in our public education system,” said state Senator Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo). “We continue to relegate our state to an endless pattern of reforming our reforms.”
Having been approved by the Senate and House, the bill now goes to the governor for his signature and potential vetoes.
