The program originally proposed by Yost last month will cost about $ 83 million.
Ohio police officers, firefighters, and emergency medical technicians receive a one-time bonus to commemorate their work during the coronavirus pandemic under a bill backed by Attorney General Dave Yost.
Under House law sponsored by Republican Craig Riedel and former Montgomery County Sheriff Phil Plummer, full-time first responders are eligible for a $ 1,000 bonus and $ 500 part-time worker.
The law, introduced on Monday, uses federal pandemic relief dollars and also covers state soldiers, sheriff agents, criminal investigation agency agents, prison officers, and volunteer firefighters.
The program, first proposed by Yost last month, will cost about $ 83 million, Gongwer News Service reported.
First responders had no option to work from home and had to deal with people who refused to wear masks or were unable to reduce their social distance, Plummer said.
