Chairman Amstutz Releases Statement on Medicaid Controlling Board Item

COLUMBUS—Chairman of the House Finance and Appropriations Committee and member of the State Controlling Board Ron Amstutz (R-Wooster) today released the following statement on the Medicaid-related item that has been included in the Controlling Board meeting agenda for October 21st:

"I have grave concerns about the place, the time and the substance of this proposed Controlling Board action. Based on our solid track record of passing tough bills, I would expect a far superior and more creative solution by legislative enactment than what I fear may result from effectively crimping the legislative process."
