How to Talk About the House Budget

Every two years, Ohio’s Governor introduces and the legislature must pass a budget bill to set funding levels for every state agency and program. But the document is about far more than just money. The legislation is loaded with policy and law changes that can meaningfully impact people all across the state.

In our effort to empower and enlist constituents from across the state to watch the budget, and speak out to your representatives about programs and services that are vital for your family, friends and communities.


Today, start by downloading and saving a copy of our messaging guide for the House budget. Use it to talk to friends, lawmakers or even write a letter to the editor.


Over the next several weeks, members of the Ohio Senate are holding hearings and adding their changes to the House bill, before a Conference Committee works out differences between the two chambers.
