Ohio Statehouse


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The head of the state’s insurance fund for injured workers is stepping down from his job this month.

Gov. John Kasich’s office announced Friday that Steve Buehrer is resigning as administrator and CEO of the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation.

Buehrer has led the agency for more than five years. His last day is April 15.

In his letter of resignation, Buehrer told the governor he had accepted a position in the private sector. He didn’t elaborate on the role.

The governor’s office released the letter Friday to The Associated Press.

Buehrer thanked Kasich for the opportunity to lead the agency and said he was proud to be a member of his Cabinet.

Sarah Morrison, the bureau’s chief legal officer, will serve as interim administrator and CEO. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
