06.21.17 - Senate Democrats Comment On Senate's Passage Of Ohio Budget

 

COLUMBUS – Today, members of the Ohio Senate Democratic Caucus expressed frustration with their Republican colleagues' choice to make cuts to communities and services when better alternatives existed. The Republican-led Senate passed their version of the two-year state budget bill (Amended Substitute House Bill 49) this evening and sent it to the House for concurrence. Senate Democrats had offered two alternative budget plans that would have balanced Ohio's budget and sent funding where it was most needed. Both of these proposals were rejected in favor of massive cuts across the board.

 
 

06.15.17 - Senate Democrats Announce Plan To Erase Ohio's Budget Deficit And Fund Vital Services

 

COLUMBUS – Today, the Ohio Senate Democratic Caucus announced a budget plan that would erase the state budget deficit and provide additional funding for communities, schools, Medicaid, and the fight against Ohio’s opioid crisis. This could be accomplished by suspending the business investor tax break, which has failed to create jobs. It does not provide employers enough funds to hire any new workers. The nonpartisan Legislative Service Commission (LSC) estimates the tax deduction will cost Ohio over $1 billion per year during the next budget.

Skindell (D-Lakewood), the ranking Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee, spoke out after the Ohio Senate released its version of the state budget (HB 49).  The Senate plan calls for more than $1 billion in cuts to erase a growing deficit and does nothing to correct misguided GOP tax policies.

COLUMBUS – Today, as President Trump visits Ohio, the Ohio Senate Democratic Caucus is calling on the U.S. Congress to vote against the American Health Care Act of 2017 (AHCA).
