Ohio's Budget Bill
After months of deliberations, revisions, and hours of floor debate in the Ohio General Assembly, Governor Kasich signed the biennial budget bill, Am. Sub. H.B. 59 (the "Budget Bill"), on June 30, 2013. The Budget Bill authorizes state spending for the 2014 and 2015 fiscal years and contains many policy changes, especially in the tax area. The goal of these tax policy changes is to give Ohioans more buying power and to help create more jobs.
