"...Two Democratic legislators from the Cleveland area want to revive the Depression-era federal Works Progress Administration on a state scale to create public works jobs around Ohio, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Reps. Nickie Antonio and Mike Foley on Monday unveiled details of the Ohio Works Progress Administration, which would cost about $400 million over two years and create an average of 50 jobs in each of the state's 88 counties. The public service jobs would pay about $27,500 annually, the paper reported."
