Gov. John Kasich proposed a sweeping budget Monday that reduces state income and small business taxes through increases in other areas, boosts school funding and expands Medicaid services with help from the federal government.
The Republican governor said the $63.1 billion, two-year spending blueprint represents "the right mix" of supporting economic development and helping the needy.
"That's the hallmark of this administration," he said. "It's not enough that some people can do well. Everyone in Ohio must have the prospect of doing better."
