HSC Calls for Final Budget that Helps, Not Hurts, Ohio’s Recovery from Covid-19

With the Ohio Budget amidst the most important Conference Committee deliberations in years, we submitted the below letter to Governor DeWine, Ohio House Speaker Cupp, and Ohio Senate President Johnson, calling for a budget that improves access to child care, housing, healthcare, food, and broadband.

The Senate’s version of the Budget would have the opposite effect.

With the pandemic and its consequences still affecting so many in our community, we need a budget that can help people get back to work, and help our state recover.

We need a budget that can help our members unleash the power of human potential.

We hope you will join us, and our friends across the state beseeching the General Assembly to advance a budget that will help, not hurt, the State of Ohio.
