As expected, the Ohio House on Wednesday rejected Senate changes to the $53.6 billion state budget, sending the bill to a conference committee to work out differences.
The group, which begins meeting today, must get a budget for 2010-11 approved by the end of the month, when the current fiscal year ends. In addition to the short time frame, the task will be complicated by new revenue estimates due out today, which could open up a hole of about $2 billion that lawmakers will have to find a way to fill.
Serving on the committee are: Reps. Vernon Sykes of Akron and Jay Goyal of Mansfield, both Democrats; Republican Rep. Ron Amstutz of Wooster; Sens. John Carey of southern Ohio and Mark Wagoner of the Toledo area, both Republicans; and Sen. Dale Miller, Cleveland Democrat.
Hmmm – what’s missing from this picture?
Oh yeah! The same thing that was missing from Congress’ batch of legislators who were supposed to conference over ARRA – ten men.
I wish them luck but mostly I wish they’d have included at least one woman – especially the Democrats who have so many to choose from. Go ahead in the know Columbus geeks – tell me how these appointments are made to see if that’s the defense (which is what the US Congress said).
