(COLUMBUS, Ohio)—Ohio Governor Mike DeWine issued the following statement in support of Ohio Auditor of State Keith Faber and his office conducting a special audit of the State Teachers Retirement System (STRS):

“This week, I spoke with Auditor Faber regarding his ongoing special audit of STRS. The issues being reviewed are of real importance to Ohio teachers and retired teachers: the transparency of the pension system, investment costs and fees, and the impact of cost-of-living adjustments.
