$32 Million In Cuts To DYS Should Be Reinvested, Supporters Say

During testimony on the budget (HB 64*) before the Senate Corrections Subcommittee, Erin Davies, executive director of the Juvenile Justice Coalition, was among those urging for at least some of that savings to be reinvested to serve Ohio's at-risk youth.
