Gov. Kasich’s Budget Plan Outlines Latest Tax Reform
Listen to the Story
Gov. John Kasich unveils his second budget this afternoon.
The school funding formula that the governor revealed last week, with $7.4 billion in K-12 spending in the first year and $7.7 billion in the second, is one big part of the budget. Another is what budget director Tim Keen calls significant tax reform specifically aimed at the income tax.
â€œThe governor has said that the severance tax will be part of our broader tax reform proposal that we are putting forward.â€ Says Keen â€œBut there is more to it than just the severance tax?â€ Keen: â€œIt is a much broader tax reform proposal than just the severance tax.â€
Itâ€™s also expected the governor will expand Medicaid to cover people up to 138% of the federal poverty level, an idea with broad support but big concern among some conservatives.
