Ohio House Democrats Introduce ‘Priority Investment’ with Family Tax Credit

The credit would be for low- and middle-class families

Ohio House Democrats are calling on the legislature to take up what they call a “priority investment” in children, in the form of a tax credit based on income.

State Reps. Casey Weinstein, D-Hudson, and Lauren McNally, D-Youngstown, are leading a new bill they’re calling the “Thriving Families Tax Credit." It would give middle- and low-income families a tax credit to make up for the lapse in COVID-19 pandemic-era benefits that helped with child care costs and other necessities.

"This is a priority investment that I think we should make, that’s right up there with funding our public schools," Weinstein said in a Tuesday press conference announcing the bill.
