One Ohio Now, a broad-based coalition of over 60 organizations, is unveiling a new website which details the deep cuts Ohio communities are experiencing under the current state budget.
CutsHurtOhio.com has county-by-county breakdowns detailing the size of cuts to education and local government Ohio communities are facing under the state budget. Embedded in the local government numbers are cuts to health and human service levies, children's services, seniors services, public libraries and municipalities. A second year of deeper cuts in revenue sharing went into effect this month. The site also collects headlines from local papers that capture some of the ways these cuts are impacting local schools and communities.
