COLUMBUS- The Ohio House of Representatives voted this afternoon to approve the state’s two year operating budget, Sub. HB 59. Following the vote, State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) issued the following statement:


 “Instead of strengthening schools, communities and middle-class families, this budget puts millionaires first and continues the GOP’s extreme attacks on women’s healthcare.


 “This budget denies healthcare coverage to nearly 300,000 Ohioans in need. It also raises sales and property taxes on middle-class Ohioans to help pay for a tax cut that overwhelmingly favors those at the very top. For these reasons, I voted against House Bill 59, Governor Kasich’s executive budget.”
