Kasich Budget To Include Some Familiar Themes, With More Income Tax Cuts A Key Goal

Gov. John Kasich's third biennial spending plan set for release Monday isn't shaping up as a mere continuation budget, but the multi-billion dollar blueprint isn't expected to include as many policy bombs as his prior efforts either.

There won't be any proposals such as bonding the turnpike for road improvements, slashing expenditures to match dwindling revenues, revamping the school finance formula or expanding Medicaid eligibility - contentious issues the governor has already accomplished with the assistance of his fellow Republicans in the legislative majority.
