June 29, 2021
COLUMBUS—State Senator Bob Peterson (R-Washington Court House) released a statement following the Senate's historic vote yesterday to approve Ohio's biennial budget conference committee report:

"This budget responsibly prioritizes the hardworking men and women who drive our economy, protects our veterans, begins the process for providing broadband access to underserved areas of Ohio, and it ensures our children get the best education possible. Yesterday, I was proud to vote for the largest income tax cut in state history, putting more money back into the pockets of each and every Ohioan. This budget also invests $250 million in expanding broadband and equalizes a fair school funding formula, which will both be life-changing for my constituents in underserved parts of rural Ohio. And finally, we expanded access to care for our veterans who are struggling with PTSD. Thank you to my Senate colleagues and every Ohioan who reached out to my office and made their voices heard. I am confident this is a budget we can all be proud of now and in the future."—State Senator Bob Peterson
