Quoted @DispatchAlerts

No federal relief leaves states, cities facing big deficits https://t.co/UU2zpSf3uj

Wake up call 4 cities-especially in #Oh with a uniquely bad #municipalincometax-they are going 2 need 2 focus on core services & dispense with non-essential spending 4 the foreseeable future. The economic & #tax revenue impact of #COVID19 are going 2 be with us 4 a long time. https://t.co/oAMezY9raA

A good story in @daytondailynews on need for #broadband for #education. This is one of the big messages from the #COVID19 pandemic. https://t.co/0LhTfz2Fof

Quoted @TheBuckeyeInst

Good piece by @RichExner! "People who do not live in a city and don’t work in a city, nonetheless are being taxed in a city. The Buckeye Institute’s lawsuit challenges that as unconstitutional.” Buckeye’s Robert Alt on #OH’s pandemic tax law. https://t.co/GXFg37PMix

Yes. This. Good piece by @RichExner https://t.co/lrs9feYvKI

Spot on. #Oh should do this with... or without federal $. Here is how #EducationSavingsAccounts can work, from work of @lindseymburke & I for @TheBuckeyeInst, https://t.co/g9Yui8ixy2 https://t.co/U7xUgXEOKw

Quoted @LtGovHusted

Lt. Gov. @JonHusted: 2 weeks ago, we announced that the state will allocate $50 million through a grant program to help provide hotspots and internet-enabled devices to students. This program will officially launch this coming Monday. Visit https://t.co/Ds2GjnoKco to apply.

This is a good step @LtGovHusted. #Broadband is critical for #education, especially during ongoing #COVID19 disruptions. Would encourage @JonHusted & @GovMikeDeWine to consider #EducationSavingsAccounts as well 2 help students needing more help in this time of stress. https://t.co/HFUmcwL0tg

Quoted @karenkasler

.@GovMikeDeWine’s second COVID-19 test, taken at Ohio State in Columbus, comes back negative. The 73-yr-old DeWine, who has asthma, tested positive after a rapid test administered by the White House before a planned meeting w President Trump.

This is good news. https://t.co/iRhYySEoZI

These companies are right 2 call 4 repealing #HB6. They are wrong on wanting the renewable mandate back. The big lesson here should be: it's bad public policy 2 subsidize or mandate any specific energy source. No #EnergySubsidies. No #EnergyMandates https://t.co/ew0jMasNzH

Quoted @LarryObhof

Best wishes to @MikeDeWine for a speedy recovery. https://t.co/3qpDGEfF5U

Definitely hoping all goes well for @MikeDeWine after his positive test for #COVID19. https://t.co/8S7P9UcxQQ

With new #Oh House leadership, it's time 2 get #COVID19 liability protections 4 #Oh businesses now. The impact of the pandemic is not going away. Businesses do not need 2 worry about being sued into oblivion while they are struggling to survive & meet payroll.

Quoted @TheBuckeyeInst

This is a critical part of sentencing reform in #Ohio which is why Buckeye has been supportive of this policy. #CJReform https://t.co/YVBhTeEnXn

Spot on. Kudos @OHSupremeCourt. This might be the most critical #CriminalJusticeReform reform we can do in #Oh. The data we will get from this will help inform many other potential policies. Without it, we are making progress, but slower than it could, and should, be. https://t.co/SXoVw7mJN2

Good move to expand #healthcare access by @realDonaldTrump, especially during #COVID19 crisis. #Oh lawmakers looking at this too. #Telehealth will become increasingly important. We will need to get our policies aligned right here. https://t.co/eQhkg9AtnF

From @pewtrusts - Pandemic Brings Fresh Challenges for City Budgeting. This will be especially tough in #Oh with the nation's worst local #tax- the #municipalincometax. https://t.co/EgYKYwIT72

Quoted @TheBuckeyeInst

Buckeye joined a coalition of 38 nationally recognized groups led by @WILawLiberty on an amicus brief in Michigan v. DeVos calling for CARES Act money to be distributed fairly & equitably to serve all students and help all schools safely reopen https://t.co/r45OYC9x1u

Exactly this. https://t.co/UxHxoF13H7

In the wake of #COVID19, #schoolchoice is a mich needed option. #EducationSavingsAccounts can, if properly created, become the vehicle for all types of education options to become fulky available to ALL students. https://t.co/BzTeIvfWf1

Quoted @Russo4Ohio

ICYMI: A thread...1)JMOC, the legislative committee charged to provide continuing oversight of all facets of the Medicaid program (and on which I serve), hasn’t met this year. This is particularly egregious given known issues with both PBM contracts and the enrollment system. 1/5 https://t.co/KpWUq3gdO4

JMOC is going to have its work cut out for it the rest of this year and next as billions of new $ flow through #Oh #Medicaid during #COVID19. Many issues to work through. This is only one, but taxpayers are going to need to trust the system now more than ever. https://t.co/bw4e1uK6BN

Quoted @OhioPharmacists

Thanks to @GovMikeDeWine’s staff and @OhioMedicaid for meeting with pharmacists this afternoon to discuss logistics and strategies to increase patient access to COVID-19 testing at pharmacies. We’re dedicated to making Ohio a model for other states to follow. #InThisTogetherOhio

Need this to happen, especially as #COVID19 crisis persists. https://t.co/NZliiCICKa

Reinforces why we need 2 end ALL #energy subsidies: #oil, #gas, #solar, #wind, #nuclear. As long as #government can advantage some actors over others, they will look 2 tilt field to their advantage. #Cronycapitalism much bigger than just #HB6 & #Oh. https://t.co/i04DNQANtV

#Broadband will continue to be critical as #education continued to suffer from #COVID19 shutdowns of schools.

If we want 2 end #cronycapitalism, we need 2 end ALL #subsidies. Policymakers in #Oh wrestling with repealing #HB6 should remember that. As long as millions of $ are on the table, whether 4 #oil, #renewables, #gas, or #nuclear, the opportunities for corruption remain. #energy
