Kasich seeks tax, program changes in new Ohio budget



Published: Wed, March 14, 2012 @ 2:44 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Republican Gov. John Kasich is drawing upon the example of Congress by proposing a second-year budget in a state that writes its budget every second year.

Kasich's review proposes sweeping changes to state energy, education, Medicaid and tax policy. It includes a tax hike on oil and gas drillers that he would direct to an eventual income-tax cut. During an announcement today, Kasich said the plan consolidates government programs to save $90 million.

Budget director Tim Keen says that as U.S. House budget chairman in the 1990s, Kasich became accustomed to the cycle of annual budgets in Washington.

The difference for Kasich at the state level is that Ohio’s two-year operating budget must be passed by a constitutionally mandated deadline. It also must be balanced.

wait a minute, i thought raising taxes on "job creators" was frowned upon.
