Ohio school funding announcement put on hold

News-Herald |

A news conference to announce potential changes to the way Ohio funds its public schools scheduled for Tuesday was put on hold while bill authors continue to work on the legislation.

The Ohio House of Representatives communications office said State Reps. John Patterson, D-Jefferson, and Gary Scherer, R-Circleville, were making adjustments to Substitute House Bill 305, a bill originally introduced in the spring of 2019.

The representatives were expected to discuss the legislation that provides a comprehensive revision to the state’s primary and secondary school funding system.
