(Sandusky, OH) Governor John Kasich says Ohio is stable and strong, but gains over the past year would evaporate without teamwork and risk-taking.
The governor encouraged Ohioans to come together for the good of all last night during his State of the State address in Sandusky. Kasich asked state lawmakers to cross political lines to create more jobs, fight the state's opiate crisis and encourage innovation.
Governor Kasich dedicated several minutes of his State of the State speech in Sandusky to autonomous vehicles. He predicts cars and trucks as we know it will become obsolete in not too many years. Kasich predicts drones will deliver groceries and pizzas to our door.
The governor's accomplishments in office were used as examples of risk-taking that paid off including Medicaid expansion, privatized economic development efforts and welfare reform. Kasich says Ohio is on the cutting edge of new technologies and only a fear of change can prevent the Buckeye State from being a leader in autonomous vehicles, unmanned aircraft and information technology.
