Today Gov. John Kasich applauded the Ohio House State Government and Elections Committee for prioritizing the review of H.B. 1 (Duffey), legislation to create JobsOhio. After hearing from all interested parties, legislators passed H.B. 1 out of committee.
"I applaud Chairman Mecklenborg and the House State Government and Elections Committee for their speedy passage of H.B. 1. Through this important vote, the Committee has acknowledged that we must act quickly to fix Ohio's problems. This action is both encouraging and necessary, and it marks the beginning of a united and focused effort to grow jobs in our state," said Kasich.
H.B. 1 is scheduled to be heard by the House Finance and Appropriations Committee on Thursday.
