New state budget being reviewed by lawmakers

Lawmakers are now sifting through the latest budget proposal from Gov. John Kasich. His nearly $144 billion plan features an income tax cut and a broader sales tax. Kasich’s budget includes another income tax cut through restructured brackets and rates along with increased income tax exemptions. However, Kasich is once again pushing for a broader sales tax that expands to services such as cable TV, landscaping and elective plastic surgery. Kasich says, besides balancing a federal budget, achieving tax reform is the hardest sell.
