Income Tax Cut Part Of Gov. Kasich's Budget Proposal

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Governor John Kasich has released his last two-year budget proposal.

The $67 billion budget would deliver a 17% income tax cut. That would be offset with increases to hikes in the alcohol and tobacco taxes and gas drilling. The state sales tax would also be raised, from 5.75% up to 6.25%. 

The proposal also contains a temporary freeze in tuition and fees at Ohio's public colleges and universities. K-12 schools will also receive a 1% increase in funding over the next two years. 

The Ohio Legislature must now approve the budget and send any changes back to Kasich for his signature. State law mandates the budget be signed by the governor by June 30.
