Statement from Ohio State President E. Gordon Gee on the Ohio House budget

“I would like to thank Speaker Batchelder and his colleagues for their support of higher education. The House budget affirms the financial support of higher education recommended in the executive budget and further advances reforms that will relieve universities from burdensome regulatory rules. The House budget is also responsive to concerns raised regarding degree programs and faculty responsibilities. Speaker Batchelder and leaders of the Ohio House of Representatives clearly share Governor Kasich’s belief that investing in higher education is essential to Ohio’s future. I am grateful for their leadership and vision.”
