Sprague Gives Update on Ohio Budget

Ohio Treasurer Robert Sprague gives an update on Ohio’s budget while visiting Eastern Gateway Community College.

Sprague says there are some industries, such as the restaurant industry, that are still hurting. But he added that Ohio has rebounded well from COVID-19.

“Our sales tax revenues are up, our income tax revenues are up, our expenses are down from the hiring freeze, so we’re doing very well,” Sprague says.
