OCHLA’s Cavanaugh  defends budget before House Finance Committee

April 2, 2011: Lilleana Cavanaugh, Ohio Latino Affairs Executive Director, testified before the House Finance Subcommittee on Primary and Secondary Education.  The House Committee, chaired by Representative John Carey, will make budget recommendations to the full Finance Committee for boards and commissions like OCHLA.

Cavanaugh’s testimony reinforced the value of OCHLA’s role in connecting government to the fast-growing Latino constituency in Ohio and the shared goal of creating jobs & encouraging entrepreneurialism:

“Updated Census information clearly demonstrates the value of our community‘s impact on Ohio’s economy.  Our commission is ready, willing and able to help build a better, multi-cultural, and global ready Ohio. We strongly support the legislature’s and the Governor’s emphasis on creating jobs and more opportunity for all.  That includes leveraging international relationships and exploiting the dynamic energy of our community’s new entrepreneurs.”

The full testimony is available at: http://ochla.ohio.gov

Ohio releases a budget every two years (called a biennial budget) and it runs from July 1st until June 30th of odd-numbered years.  Governor John Kasich maintained the Ohio Latino Affairs Commission in the initial version of the biennial budget for fiscal years 2012/2013.

While the Commission faces a 6.8% budget reduction, it will be able to continue its mandate to advise, connect, and build the Latino community at the proposed funding level.  OCHLA’s budget must now survive the House, Senate, and Legislative Conference Committee’s budget deliberations process.
