COLUMBUS, Ohio (WDTN) – Governor John Kasich is dumping a billion dollars back into Ohio’s economy.

He unveiled a plan called Another Billion Back which builds on last year’s effort Billion Back.

It officers a one time rebate of $1-billion for private employers and public taxing districts.

“The “Another Billion Back” proposal represents the collaborative efforts of state and local officials,” Representative Richard Adams of Troy said. “Not only does this plan give money back to Ohio’s employers, but it also benefits workers who will see improved safety conditions in the workforce.”

If the Board of Workers’ Compensation approves the plan at their August meeting, employers could see rebate checks, which equal 60 percent of their annual premium, as early as October.

The program works to strengthen the economy and ensure safe job environments.
