Gov. Kasich talks about bills pending before lame-duck Legislature session

Published: Wed, October 24, 2012 @ 2:30 p.m.

COLUMBUS — Bank-tax reform, an increase in the oil and gas production tax and the possible privatization of the Ohio Turnpike are among the issues Gov. John Kasich is eyeing heading into the post-election legislative lame duck session.

Kasich told Statehouse reporters today that anything that doesn't get done in the final weeks of the general assembly will be pushed into the new one next year, potentially becoming part of his next biennial budget.

"We're busy preparing what we're going to be doing next year," Kasich said. "And those things that are our priorities that don't get done in lame duck, we're going to stick them in our budget, those things we feel strongly about."

Kasich said he planned to meet with legislative leaders this week to discuss the final weeks of the session and the potential passage of certain bills.

Never mind what the public wants - he's going ahead with his schemes regardless. Just wait until Kasich himself is a lame duck - you think Dick Celeste went bonkers?? Kasich will be 10 times worse.

Thank you Governor Kasich, for saving Ohio from bankruptcy. Keep the statehouse liberal-free!

Whatever happened to House Bill 215? Stalled for 2 1/2 years? Come on already...
