Ohio House Approves School Funding Overhaul

Dec 4, 2020

The Ohio House has approved a bi-partisan bill to overhaul the state’s unconstitutional school funding system.

But it remains uncertain whether the Senate will vote on it this month. Some GOP Senate lawmakers question the accuracy and feasibility of the eventual price tag, an estimated 2 billion dollars annually. Backers are urging action before year’s end, when several leave office and the legislative process restarts. But the leader of the Senate Finance Committee says the changes should be considered during next year’s state budget process.
