Ohio Governor Mike DeWine signed Am. Sub. House Bill 166, Ohio’s FY ’20-’21 general operating budget, into law.
“I am proud that this budget will significantly impact the lives of Ohioans through its unprecedented investments,” said Governor DeWine. “It lays the groundwork for a better Ohio for generations to come. This budget will lead to healthier children, stronger families, safer communities, an enhanced workforce, and a more prosperous Ohio, while also providing significant tax relief for every Ohio taxpayer and regulatory relief for Ohio businesses.”
Am. Sub. House Bill 166, which was approved with bi-partisan support by both the Ohio House of Representatives and Ohio Senate, supports Governor DeWine’s goal of making wise investments that will positively impact Ohio’s future. The budget provides targeted resources to children and families, as well as to Ohio’s education system, workforce, local communities, environment, and mental health and addiction recovery efforts.
