JobsOhio Complies With Subpoena

Mar 19, 2013

Ohio's private non-profit job creation agency says it complied with the subpoena issued by State Auditor David Yost to turn over its private financial records.

JobsOhio spokesperson Laura Jones says the records were delivered ahead of today's noon deadline, despite continuing to maintain Yost lacks the legal authority to audit the records. Yost says Ohio law gives him the right to review private financial records with ties to public funds. JobsOhio received 1 million in taxpayer start-up money and has gone to market with a 1.5 billion dollar bond sale backed by proceeds from Ohio liquor sales.
