Minority Leader Fred Strahorn (D-Dayton) today announced the release of $1,300,000 in state funds to the University of Dayton to help advance the Ohio Manufacturing Extension Partnership (Ohio MEP) program.

09.03.18 - Rep. Strahorn Releases Statement On Labor Day

 

State Rep. Fred Strahorn (D-Dayton) today released a statement in honor of Labor Day:

House Democrats today announced Ohio’s back-to-school sales tax-free holiday scheduled for this weekend, August 3-5, as a result of the passage of Senate Bill (SB) 226. The annual event helps lessen the sting of the 4.5 percent statewide sales tax hike passed by Republican lawmakers in the 2013 state budget. The hike has cost taxpayers almost $2 billion more since then, according to state revenue numbers.
