COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio businesses and public employers have started getting one-time rebate checks from the state's insurance fund for injured workers.
Republican Gov. John Kasich (KAY'-sik) on Wednesday handed out the first of the $1 billion in rebate checks to a pizza place owner in downtown Columbus.
About 210,000 businesses, schools, local governments and others can expect to see money in the coming weeks from the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation. Checks will range from $5 to more than $3 million.
Kasich says solid investments have made the rebates possible, and he believes the money will help stimulate Ohio's economy.
Toledo Mayor Michael Bell also appeared at the news conference to pick up a check and personally thank Kasich for his work on the rebate proposal.
