Ted Strickland on Budget & Economy

Democratic Governor; previously Representative (OH-6)

 


Slowest Growing Budget in 42 Years

Over the two-year span of the budget, spending will increase a modest average of 2.2 percent annually. Thatís lower than any budget in the last 42 years. Eleven state agencies will absorb a funding cut over the biennium, and 20 others will make do without any additional funding. Making these tough choices allows us to target our resources to address our greatest needs and our greatest opportunities.

Turnaround Ohio: invest in innovation and entrepreneurship

Turnaround Ohio is the Strickland/Fisher strategy to move our state in the right direction. The plan aims to keep and grow the jobs we have by investing in Ohio's strengths, such as energy production, innovation and entrepreneurship, and the plan will bring the jobs of the future by making sure Ohio has the most-educated workforce possible--because, in the future, jobs will go where the workforce is best educated.

The third Turnaround Ohio proposal, Learning for Life: Skills for High-Quality Jobs, aims to help meet one of the plan's most important goals: making sure workers have access to lifelong education and that employers have access to well-trained workers.

Businesses tell us that the biggest obstacle they face in expanding and growing is their ability to attract and retain highly skilled and motivated employees. We need to face facts, and get Ohioans ready. [Source: Candidate Website ]

Voted YES on restricting bankruptcy rules.

Vote to pass the bill that would require debtors who are able to pay back $10,000 or 25 percent of their debts over five years to file under Chapter 13, rather then seeking to discharge their debts under Chapter 7. Chapter 13, calls for a reorganization of debts under a repayment plan. A Debtor would be restricted, in this bill, to a total exemption of $125,000 in home equity for residences bought within 40 months of a bankruptcy filing. The bill also would establish permanent and retroactive Chapter 12 bankruptcy relief for farmers.
