Call your state Senator this weekend to ensure key provisions remain in the budget
This weekend, the Ohio Senate will be making final decisions on the Senate Sub-bill of Ohio's SFY 2018-2019 biennial budget bill. Please contact your state Senator and ask them to keep key provisions put in by the House.
Specifically, ask them to:
- Keep the $170 million dollars that the House put in House Bill 49 for the purpose of increasing and improving services for individuals with mental illness and/or addiction disorders.
- Keep the provision that would have private insurers reimburse for telemedicine services.
It is imperative that our voices are heard, as the Senate has many difficult financial decisions to make as they conclude their budget process.
