On Monday Gov. John Kasich released his two-year budget proposal. The $66.9 billion budget will cut income taxes by 17 percent while increasing sales taxes. It also has provisions for a college tuition freeze, Medicaid expansion and minor increases in spending to help combat the heroin epidemic. 

In order to take effect, it must be approved by July 1 of this year. Today we'll discuss the details of the proposal and its implications with the state of Ohio's director of the Office of Budget and Management. 

Guests:

  • Timothy Keen, Director of the Office of Budget and Management, State of Ohio
