State Rep. Terry Boose (R-Norwalk Township) recently offered insight into the recent controversy surrounding the JobsOhio program.
"When the JobsOhio program was created through a bill, it was supposed to take over the functions of the Department of Development," Boose said. "A difference would be JobsOhio would be a private entity instead of public."
State auditor Dave Yost has requested an audit be conducted on JobsOhio since it uses public funds, something Gov. John Kasich and members of the JobsOhio team have resisted.
The governor appoints the JobsOhio board members, some of whom make in excess of $100,000 per year.
Boose discussed details of JobsOhio and the controversy in a recent story published in the Norwalk Reflector.
