Ohio House Republicans last week moved to block a bond-financed bill that would offer bonuses to veterans of recent wars, saying they were in favor of the measure but opposed to financing it through borrowing.

The move comes after the Republican-controlled Senate unanimously approved the legislation, which would offer bonuses of up to $1,000 for veterans who served in Iraq or Afghanistan and up to $700 for those who served in the Persian Gulf War. A Senate resolution would also offer up to $5,500 to the family of a service member killed in duty in any of those recent wars.
