The Ohio House of Representatives voted this afternoon to approve the state’s two year operating budget, Substitute House Bill 64. Following the vote, State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) issued the following statement:

“Yet again, the ultra-conservative majority in the Ohio legislature has delivered a partisan budget that weakens middle-class families, prioritizes our state’s wealthiest individuals and attacks women’s health care.This budget cut 16 million dollars from local communities and increased taxes on working class Ohioans. I voted against House Bill 64 because it does not protect the best interest of everyday Ohioans, but instead continues to push our state in the wrong direction.”
