Public Testimony Begins On Tax Portions of Budget As Governor Makes Hard Sell To Legislature
As we look back on this past week at the Statehouse there were several notable events. Governor John Kasich delivered his state of the state on Tuesday evening spending the bulk of it discussing his tax proposals released earlier this month in his biennium budget. On Wednesday, the legislature heard the first public testimony on those very tax provisions included in House Bill 64.
The Governor traveled to Wilmington, home of Speaker of the House Cliff Rosenberger, to deliver his annual address which ultimately became a push for the legislature to approve his proposed budget, which includes both tax cuts and tax increases.
