Aid Bill In Debate

More than $2 billion dollars in federal aid to Ohio schools, businesses and renters is nearing final approval at the Ohio Statehouse, where both legislative chambers have now cleared the spending in some form. The Ohio House approved its final piece of the legislation. Multiple bills in both chambers must next be reconciled and sent to Gov., DeWine for his signature. The pools of funding come from the federal CARES Act, passed last year, and the $1.9 trillion dollar COVID relief bill, signed in March. Ohio’s distributions include $857 million dollars for public and private schools and other educational services…$465 million in emergency rental assistance…and $240 million dollars for child care services and providers, veterans’ homes and fairs.
