State Budget Approximate Timeline
Constitutionally, Ohio’s budget must be balanced, passed by both chambers and signed by the governor prior to July 1 – the beginning of the new biennium.
About the Mid-biennium Review
After signing his first biennial operating budget in 2011, and again after completing his second state budget in 2013, Governor Kasich asked the Office of Budget and Management to conduct a top-to-bottom review of state government agencies and programs one-year before Ohio's budget-setting process would traditionally begin. This effort became known as the Mid-biennium Review, or MBR.
