House Just Getting Started On Rework Of Kasich Tax Proposals

Rep. McClain says income tax rates not the only important facet of state's business attractiveness Rep. Cera said Democrats remain leery of 'tax shifting' in budget

Gov. John Kasich's budgetary tax package is headed for a rewrite in the House, where majority GOP members are in favor of a tax cut but aren't inclined to follow the executive's path directly.

That's the sense around Capitol Square, where the House Ways & Means Committee just wrapped up the second of a three-week deep dive into the details of the governor's plan (HB 64*) to shake up the state's tax code with an eye toward cutting overall taxes by a half billion dollars or so.
