Ohio is Broke…So Why are We Forfeiting $176.3 Million in Federal Funds?

In Great Recession, Politics on July 14, 2011 at 10:03 am

From (full disclosure: my employer) Policy Matters Ohio:

Ohio now has less than two months to take steps to modernize its unemployment compensation system, or it will forfeit $176.3 million in federal funds.

Call me crazy, but it seems kind of irresponsible for lawmakers to forfeit this money at a time when the state is so broke.

update: the issue is featured on the Columbus Dispatch.
