AOF Urges Action on Unemployment Compensation System Reform
With the culmination of the 132nd General Assembly drawing near, Advocates for Ohio’s Future (AOF) must draw attention to an important issue in need of further consideration and resolution during the last months of session.

We urge state legislators to develop a legislative solution that funds a long-term and balanced approach to solvency that protects all of Ohio’s workers today and in the future. Read our full statement here
