As it happens every two years, the 2022-23 state budget was passed in late June after months of debate in both the Ohio House and Senate. The state budget ultimately determines how public resources will be spent on many things our communities need: K-12 public schools, health and human services, local governments, public transit, libraries, economic development, and more.
This particular budget comes on the heels of the state’s reopening after public health precautions were put in place due to COVID-19; making it one of the most vital tools to help address some of the alarming disparities and challenges Ohioans faced during the course of the pandemic. Behind all the numbers, mandates, and packages – what does it mean for everyday Ohioans and our communities?
Join us for our virtual Friday Forum as we decode the state budget with Hannah Halbert, Executive Director at Policy Matters Ohio; Greg Lawson, Research Fellow at the Buckeye Institute; and Andy Chow, Journalist/Producer with the Statehouse News Bureau.
The livestream will be available beginning at 12:30 p.m. Have questions? Tweet them at @TheCityClub or send a text to 330.541.5794.
