The state says it’s on track to meet its self-set March 31st deadline for paying back thousands of dollars in child support it improperly withheld from poor families. Counties have reviewed about 95 percent of the cases so far. The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services has returned about 14 million dollars so far to nearly 62-thousand former welfare recipients. That’s an average of 226 dollars per case. Counties found that money was not owed in about 35-thousand-700 other cases they reviewed. Agency director Tom Hayes says 81 of 88 counties have completed or are nearly finished auditing cases.
