County Commissioners' Association of Ohio - 88 CCAO - Serving Ohio Counties Since 1880


Wednesday, April 26, 2017

Press Conference:  4:15 PM
Reception:  5-7 PM

Statehouse Atrium


The Ohio Council of County Officials (OCCO) is hosting a Press Conference and Legislative Reception on Wednesday, April 26 for county elected officials and members of the 132nd Ohio General Assembly. Statewide office holders have also been invited.

OCCO is an organization that strives to unite the various associations representing county auditors, commissioners, clerk of courts, coroners, engineers, prosecuting attorneys, recorders, treasurers, sheriffs and judges in order to promote sound, efficient and fiscally responsible government.  It serves as a forum to provide information about issues of importance to county elected officials and allows members the opportunity to work on legislative issues of mutual concern.

April is National County Government Month, so we hope you will join OCCO for this Reception/Open House on April 26 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. in the Statehouse Atrium in Columbus. Invite your member(s) of the General Assembly to the reception!

Press Conference Information

The OCCO press conference will discuss how the elimination of the Medicaid managed care organization (MCO) sales tax will negatively affect counties and transit authorities. In 2016 the MCO sales tax represented $209 million, or 8.2 percent, of all county and transit authority sales tax collections.  The current proposal included in the SFY 18/19 Executive Budget fully replaces lost revenue to the state, but provides counties and transit authorities a one-time allocation ranging from three months to several years' worth of revenue.
