The Ohio House and Senate passed a state budget bill July 17.
After a 17-day extension, the conference committee sorted out the House and Senate versions of the budget, finally agreeing to 4% income tax cut and funding for Governor DeWine’s H2Ohio Initiative.
“Farm Bureau applauds the Ohio House and Senate for including two of our highest priority issues, preservation of the business income deduction and a collaborative plan to address water quality challenges through Governor DeWine’s H2Ohio Initiative, in the state’s operating budget,” said Adam Sharp, Executive Vice President, Ohio Farm Bureau Federation. “Farm Bureau also appreciates the funding increases for our partners at the Ohio Department of Agriculture, Extension Services, and Soil and Water Conservation Districts, all of whom deliver critical information to our farmers regarding best practices.”
The budget now goes to Gov. DeWine for a signature.
