Testimony to Ohio Legislature on Budget from One Ohio Now
I am posting this testimony as a companion post to my earlier posting of the testimony of Ohio Conference President, John McNay, to the Ohio Senate Committee responsible for higher-education appropriations [http://academeblog.org/2015/03/05/ohio-conference-president-provides-senate-testimony-on-the-decline-in-state-support-administrate-bloat-the-cost-of-intercollegiate-athletics-and-faculty-workload/].
Although this is testimony on the broader budget, you can see that the emphases in the statements complement each other, in some ways very pointedly. Taken together, the two statements on policy demonstrate the value of conferences’ building alliances with other groups.
Our conference and my chapter make modest contributions in support of One Ohio Now, and those investments have been very worthwhile not only because of the very good work being done by One Ohio Now but also because of the linkages with a broad spectrum of Progressive groups that our involvement in One Ohio Now has made possible.
