Columbus - “The Ohio General Assembly took an important first step today on the road to Ohio’s fiscal recovery with the passage of Senate Bill 4 and House Bill 2. Performance audits can play a key role in helping state agencies streamline operations and save taxpayer dollars.”
“I commend Senator Schaffer for his ongoing leadership with Senate Bill 4 and, specifically, his efforts last year in spearheading similar legislation that passed the Senate unanimously. I also want to recognize Senate President Niehaus and Chairman Jordan for their assistance in moving the bill quickly.”
“Regarding the passage of House Bill 2, I want to thank Representative Snitchler and Representative Stautberg for their foresight and commitment to making performance audits a priority for state government.”
“Finally, I appreciate all who offered their ideas and amendments to strengthen this bipartisan legislation.”
Today the Ohio Senate unanimously passed Senate Bill 4 and the Ohio House of Representatives unanimously passed House Bill 2. Both bills require the Auditor of State Dave Yost to audit certain state agencies each biennium.
