COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Ahead of this weekend’s deadline, Ohio’s budget for the next two years is still not settled.
Lawmakers, particularly Senate and House Republicans, have failed to come to a compromise regarding a handful of issues.
One of those issues is workers compensation coverage for post-traumatic stress disorder among first responders — the House approved it, the Senate stripped it from the budget.
Lawmakers have been meeting in a conference committee this weekend working toward a compromise.
The House and Senate must present Gov. Mike DeWine with the two-year budget plan in time for him to sign it by an 11:59 p.m. Sunday deadline.
Both state houses and the governorship are controlled by Republicans.
