COLUMBUS—State Representative Marilyn Slaby (R-Copley)today applauded Governor John Kasich’s announcement regarding a plan to give $1 billion back to employers to enrich the economy and ensure that Ohio’s workforce is safe, healthy and productive.

The proposal, known as “Another Billion Back,” which builds from last year’s “Billion Back” plan, provides a one-time rebate of $1 billion for private employers and public-taxing districts. The proposal would also increase BWC’s commitment to safety by up to $35 million over the next two years and would create several new initiatives to improve the safety, health and wellness of Ohio’s workforce.

“This proposal is a great step toward growing the workforce here in Ohio,” Rep. Slaby said. “Allowing companies to reinvest this money in their infrastructure will create more jobs and allow Ohioans to continue to get back to work.”

If approved by the BWC Board of Directors during their August meeting, employers could see rebate checks, which equal 60 percent of their annual premium, as early as October.
