Governor Signs Muni Tax, Lethal Injection Secrecy Bills, Dozens Of Others; Line-Item Veto Issued On VLT Revenue Item

Gov. John Kasich fought off writer's cramp Friday and signed dozens of bills he had recently received from lawmakers who wrapped up lame duck session this week, including a long-sought rewrite of municipal tax laws.

Along with HB 5*, the product of two years of wrangling between business groups seeking more uniformity and tax administration relief and cities worried about yet another revenue hit at the hands of state leaders (See Gongwer Ohio Report, December 11, 2014), the governor inked 39 other measures.
