Ensuring Transparency and Accountability
With the 132nd Ohio General Assembly in full swing, my colleagues and I are addressing several important issues affecting families across our state. Most notably is Ohio's main operating budget. Unlike the federal government, Ohio must operate with a balanced budget, approved by the General Assembly every two years.
  
The Ohio Senate remains committed to an accessible and transparent budget process. Ohioans are invited to watch live stream coverage of all Senate Finance Committee hearings, provided by The Ohio Channel. This is a great opportunity to keep informed about where your tax dollars are being spent.
