Rep. Debbie Phillips (D-Albany) issued the following statement today on House Bill 64, the state’s two-year operating budget bill:

“This budget deepens Ohio’s dependence on failed policies, and lacks vision. By cutting taxes for the wealthiest Ohioans, this policy shifts the responsibility for paying for essential services onto our local communities. It fails to fix Ohio’s unconstitutional school funding system, and it unnecessarily limits collective bargaining rights for some of Ohio’s lowest-paid workers. This budget is the wrong direction for our region and our state, and I could not support it.”
