Ohio’s controversial job creation program says it will make public which companies get money from the agency.

JobsOhio has been criticized as being too secretive about how it doles out job creation money.

JobsOhio president John Minor said Tuesday the agency will soon begin releasing monthly reports detailing which companies get JobsOhio money. He calls it part of an effort to be more transparent.

The reports will itemize how the agency spends the state’s liquor profits, which JobsOhio secured via a private lease.

JobsOhio is technically a private non-profit organization and its executives have sparred with Democrats and open government advocates about sharing financial information.
