VP Statement Regarding Ohio House Budget

April 29, 2011

“We are extremely grateful to Speaker Batchelder, Representatives Amstutz and Balderson, and their colleagues in the House for support of the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center, Ohio State University Extension, and higher education. We understand the difficult challenges the House and Governor Kasich faced with the budget. Their support recognizes the importance of Ohio’s $107 billion agricultural industry and the nearly 900,000 jobs affiliated with it, from farm production to value-added foods and products.  We are very pleased that leaders in the House and the governor have considered us a priority in the budgeting process and appreciate their vision and leadership.”
