The State of Ohio

Anti-Tobacco Agency Funds, Casino Issue, and Safe-Net Program Cuts

State of Ohio
Posted August 14, 2009

The state budget is almost a month old, and agencies are starting to recover from the weeks of uncertainty with interim budgets and also evaluating what they can and can’t do with the funds they’re getting from the $50.5 billion spending plan. Many agencies dealing with mental health, drug and alcohol addiction and other “safety net” concerns took big hits, and while the state’s food pantry network got more than was initially predicted, it’s still far below what food banks had requested. And now the people who run these programs and services fear more budget cuts in the future. Cheri Walter, the CEO of the Ohio Association of County Behavioral Health Authorities, Lisa Hamlar Fugitt, the executive director of the Ohio Association of Second Harvest Food Banks, and Joel Potts, the executive director of the Ohio Job and Family Services Directors' Association, talk about the impact of the budget on the agencies they run and people they serve.
