Four House Democrats say JobsOhio needs to operate under the ethical and transparency standards that all state agencies do. The four-part JobsOhio Accountability Act plan would require salaries, meetings and records to be made public, for JobsOhio to be subject to audit and for a website to be set up to track its funds.

The Democrats developed a new take on the JobsOhio logo, renaming it “RobsOhio."

 “I think we certainly expect to be taken seriously by the taxpayers of the state of Ohio," Rep. John Carney of Columbus says. "Whether or not the Republican legislature wants to wake up to the fact that right now, they are allowing all of this money to be shielded. They’re acting as if liquor profits are private money. John Kasich didn’t bless this money and turn it into private money.”

Gov. Kasich’s spokesman Rob Nichols responded with a statement that says “People who care about job creation and who understand that the law’s accountability and disclosure requirements on JobsOhio make it the most transparent private company in Ohio understand the wisdom of the reforms that have been made and which are working.”
