MOU Executed to Stop Raid on BWC Funds


OMA members will recall that, over the objections of the business community, the state budget contained a raid on Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) funds, a terrible precedent of using employer-paid premium for state operating purposes. As reported to members earlier, the OMA and three business association partners worked with the Kasich administration to stop the raid. A memorandum of understanding (MOU) has now been fully executed to do just that. The MOU is signed by Tim Keen, director of the Office of Budget and Management, on behalf of the administration. 8/23/2017
