JobsOhio will reluctantly comply with auditor’s subpoena
Public-private agency plans to refund the state $1 million, but wants changes to the law to keep private donations private
by WKSU's STATEHOUSE BUREAU CHIEF KAREN KASLER


Reporter
Karen Kasler
 
In The Region:
Ninety minutes before a noon deadline, the public-private entity JobsOhio has agreed to comply with a subpoena from the state auditor. But Statehouse correspondent Karen Kasler reports there’s a twist to that story.

JobsOhio had been facing a subpoena from state Auditor David Yost, who said he had the authority to audit its public and private dollars. JobsOhio says it will comply, but the entity also says it’s refunding the $1 million it got from the state for start up costs and returning other grants, which total more than $5 million. Neither JobsOhio nor the governor’s office is happy.

A Kasich spokesman says lawmakers need to stop what he calls “a chilling effect on job creation caused by a mistaken, overly intrusive interpretation of the auditor’s duties.”

And JobsOhio chief information officer John Minor says in a statement, "The auditor’s assertion that he can audit any private company, nonprofit, or charity that receives public funds will scare off new job creators and cripple economic development.”
