Industrial Commission Budget Sent to Governor

The Ohio Industrial Commission’s two-year, $109.6 million operating budget (House Bill 76) was approved by the Senate this week. The measure is now before Gov. Mike DeWine for his consideration. The Industrial Commission budget — which funds the operations of the adjudicating body that resolves disputed workers’ compensation claims — is considered the simplest of the four operating budgets. Financing of the commission comes through employer assessments. 5/19/2021
