FOR 76 OHIO CLIENTS SINCE 2007
G2G is based in Columbus and Cleveland, representing nonprofits and businesses navigating state funding, building relationships, and influencing policy. We've secured nearly 100% of funding requests in the two most recent budget cycles, organized thousands of meetings, hundreds of Statehouse events, and
dozens of coalitions.
Ohio Legislative Updates
Governor Mike DeWine signed the FY24-25 State Operating Budget into law in the early morning hours of July 4th. The $86 billion budget includes significant changes in education and includes an historic expansion of school vouchers, changes to two state agencies, and a one-time investment in economic development among others. The legislature is now in recess until mid-September.
House Bill 33, the state operating budget, passed the Ohio House in late April. The $88 billion budget passed the House by a vote of 78 -19 with all Democrats voting yes except Rep. Elliott Forhan (D-South Euclid) and Rep. Joe Miller (D-Amherst). Read on for highlights of the bill.
G2G has been busy at the Statehouse and around Capitol Square attending meetings with legislators, agencies, and the governor’s office as well as committee hearings and legislative events. With the Statehouse in full swing for the first time since 2020, we have had the opportunity to connect with many members old and new as we navigate the budget process.
