News: Floor Vote on Capital bill expected Thursday
The state capital budget for FY 2013-2014, which received hearings yesterday and today, is on the fast-track to passage, at least according to the Speaker of the Ohio House. William Batchelder has cancelled House sessions for next Tuesday and Wednesday, replacing them with one next Thursday at 1 p.m. to allow for a floor vote on the bill (HB462).
Meanwhile, the MBR, which Governor Kasich unveiled at a press conference yesterday, still remains to be introduced, and a hearing with testimony from OBM Director Keen set for this morning has been cancelled. Hearings are expected to begin in the House Finance committee next week.
We’ll update our calendar with this and other budget-related activity’s on the schedule as soon as we get official committee notices in our inbox.
