Rep. Christie Kuhns (D-Cincinnati) issued the following statement today on approval of House Bill 64, the state’s two-year operating budget bill:

“How we spend money as a state defines our values, and I am disappointed that today’s state spending plan highlights disconnected and shortsighted values. This budget lacks equitable funding for public schools and continues attacks on women's access to healthcare and workers' rights. It includes tax breaks for the wealthy and increased taxes on middle-class and working Ohioans. The budget failed to address the lack of opportunity for average citizens to get ahead and the uncertain economic future too many families face. I am hopeful we can pass legislation later in this General Assembly to move Ohio forward, instead of falling back on old, failed policies of the past.”
