My fellow Ohioans,
Ohio and the nation are emerging from one of the worst economic periods in our history. But, we're getting Ohio back on track thanks to fiscal restraint, jobs-friendly policies, reforms to K-12 education, job training and higher education, and help for the most vulnerable Ohioans. Ohio now enjoys a balanced budget, a $1.5 billion surplus, and 238,000 new-private sector jobs.
Continuing that progress means building on the policies that we know work. The 2014 Mid-Biennium Review is another opportunity to keep moving Ohio forward. By thinking outside the box and always looking for new and creative ways to improve how government does business, Ohio is getting stronger—which is good news for all of us. Together, I know we can get it done.
God bless Ohio!
