State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) issued the following statement today after the Ohio legislature passed House Bill (HB) 49, the state’s two-year operating budget which contains a harmful provision added by GOP members to make drastic Medicaid cuts in the Buckeye State:


“This state budget doubles down on policies that burden local communities and hurt working people across our state. Instead of providing a path to the middle class for those struggling with underemployment, drug addiction and low wages, Republican leaders are gutting Medicaid, threatening healthcare access to over 700,000 Ohioans. These are young people, veterans, seniors and citizens from all walks of life working to make ends meet. We deserve better. I voted ‘no’ on this budget and I urge the governor to line-item veto these attacks on access to healthcare for working people.”
