Leader Sykes comments on governor's budget vetoes

Ohio House Democratic Leader Emilia Strong Sykes (D-Akron) today issued a statement following more than two-dozen budget bill vetoes by Gov. Mike DeWine.

“While he didn’t address all of our concerns, the governor did veto some problematic tax language Democrats opposed that would have made it harder for Ohio communities to deliver essential services and adequately fund their local school districts to give teachers and students the tools they need to succeed.

“These vetoes strengthen the bill and keep our fundamental promise to work for you, the taxpayers. Still, there is unfinished business in this budget, and Democrats remain committed to working together to find commonsense solutions that move Ohio forward.”
