Kaisch Reveals Two Year Budget Plan House to Deliberate

Anne Gonzales News, Office Press Releases

This week we got to see Governor Kasich’s two-year budget proposal, and below are some important pieces that you should know:

  • The budget is for a total of $144 billion over two years.
  • There will be $39 million in tax cuts and a 5 percent fixed-rate tax on crude oil and natural gas.
  • Ohio schools will get $200 million more over the next two years.
  • More money will be given to drug addiction treatment programs to help fight the heroin epidemic.
  • There will be a tuition freeze at public universities.

Next, the budget will go into the House Finance Committee, where my colleagues and I will go over the budget and make changes.

I will continue to make sure Ohio’s budget is working for you.
