Ohio Gov. John Kasich is taking his pitch for state tax changes on the road.
Kasich proposed a sweeping state budget on Monday that reduces state income and small business taxes through increases in other areas. It also would boost school funding and expand Medicaid services with help from the federal government.
The Republican governor discussed his budget proposal Tuesday afternoon with small business owners in the Cleveland suburb of Brooklyn Heights. Meanwhile, Kasich's budget director testified before the House finance committee on the governor's $63.1 billion, two-year spending plan.
Kasich's tax reform package incorporates a significant rewrite of Ohio's tax code that delivers $1.4 billion in tax cuts over three years.
The governor's spending blueprint is slated to be introduced in the Legislature next week.
