The House version of Gov. Mike DeWine’s budget is expected sometime today, and there are big changes coming in it. And the timeline is getting tight, since it has to pass the legislature and be signed by the end of next month.
A panel of six lawmakers charged with looking at some of the $9 billion in state tax breaks has recommended none of them be eliminated or cut back for now. Though nothing has changed, it seems few involved in the process are pleased.
Ten months ago state lawmakers created a bipartisan panel with the power to review the state budget and make recommendations for ending billions in tax loopholes. Now that group has met for the first time.
A conservative group is praising what looks to finally be the beginning of a committee that’s supposed to look into so-called tax loopholes. This is an issue that has support from both ends of the political spectrum.
