US Rep. Tim Ryan raises concern over turnpike plan



Published: Tue, February 26, 2013 @ 5:15 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) - A northern Ohio congressman is objecting to Gov. John Kasich's proposal to use Ohio Turnpike bonds to raise about $1.5 billion for state highway projects.

U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan urged members of the House Finance Committee In written testimony today to reconsider Kasich's plan before a vote Wednesday. Ryan of Niles, D-13th, questioned the prudence of increasing Ohio's debt load for highway improvements and also worried that tolls may increase.

Ryan, a potential 2014 challenger to Kasich, echoed sentiments of some Statehouse Democrats who are opposing elements of the turnpike proposal, including the lack of a guarantee most of the money will be spent in northern Ohio.

The administration says it will deliver on the Republican governor's promises, but placing precise spending targets in the law would limit flexibility.

Just another demoncrat who can't or won't come up with a better idea. All they can do is whine about something just to get their name in the news media

Too bad Timmy, you have nothing to do with the State of Ohio decisions.

If Kasich is for it, the liberal whiners like Freeatleast will post something useless...he/she would rather bring the State down to the pathetic level of the mahoning valley thinking.
