Just another case of us doing the work for the City of Columbus so they do not lose their tax revenue. It’s a complete stretch to think since their revenue might be affected that will some how affect CFD funding. BS! We need to stay in our lane and stop doing the dirty work for the City - especially when we got 0%
Wow, the most corrupt legislative body in history. No shit, been going on since 2011, Yet, many of our own continue to vote them in and get burned... “they” only like us at election time. Never learn😡
The republicans are at it again speak up Ohio
How can they be defunded when the citizens pay taxes for funding?
Your opposition to this seems very farfetched. Read the bill, it would only help the big cities across the state by allowing them to go against current tax çode and collect income tax when the work wasn't performed in the city. You, as an organization, need to reread to bill and reassess your political stance against it. Small municipalities should be the ones in the opposition because that's where the work was being performed.
I have read and re-read this bill. I don't get what the issue is They are not defunding anything. It simply says that IF an employee is able to work from home or work remotely and did/does DUE TO THE PANDEMIC between the dates of March 30, 2020 and January 1, 2022, it shall be considered to be the same as if the employee worked from the actual work location and the employer is correct in taking out municipal income tax if it applies to the actual (office) work location. It doesn't say a thing about reducing staff, making firefighters/medics/police work remote. It is is response to people attempting to have their taxes refunded because they worked at home during the pandemic and it is breaking the budgets of the cities and municipalities which would normally have gotten those taxes. What exactly is your issue with this and how does the fact that ancilliary staff who was able to work from home prevent first responders from doing their jobs? I will gladly call my representatives and raise all manner of hell if you can help me understand why this bill is a safety issue. I just hate to call them and complain without knowing the actual grounds to do so. Thanks!

Hi there! I run social media for This Old House and wanted to let you know of a great way they're giving back to first responders. They've partnered with GAF - Roofing to give a new roof to an EMT, firefighter, nurse or someone who has been on the front lines of our national health struggles over the last year: fb.watch/5yyvlMdclt/
