Ohio Senate removes stateincome tax cut from budget
COLUMBUS (AP)— State senators onTuesday pulled what’s leftof Republican Gov. JohnKasich’s proposed income taxcut from the state budget infavor of tax relief targeted atsmall businesses.The move by the GOP-led Ohio Senate FinanceCommittee came as a polit-ical blow to Kasich, whopledged to reduce the state-wide income tax if elected.The Ohio House had retained7 percent of the 20 percentpermanent income tax cutoriginally proposed byKasich. It was among doz-ens of changes the Senate ismaking to the House budgetbill.Senate President KeithFaber, a Celina Republican,said income tax relief willcontinue to be debated asbudget deliberations progress.Rather than embracethe broader income tax cut,the Senate chose to restorea small business benefitalso proposed by Kasich.That proposal would allowindividuals to deduct up to$375,000 in net annual busi-ness income for income taxpurposes. The Senate taxbreak is worth roughly $1.4billion, compared with theroughly $1.5 billion price tagfor the House’s income taxplan.Asked why the Senate’stax cut was better than theHouse’s plan, Faber said,“Because it’s about creating jobs and growing the state’seconomy.”Faber said the state alreadyrecently had a 4.2 percent,across-the-board income taxcut, and senators wanted tohelp the small businesses thatwere adding to the job mar-ket.With rosy state revenueadjustments expected nextmonth, the stage has been setfor a potential tax compro-mise incorporating elementsof both plans when the twochambers come together inlate June to reconcile theirbudget differences.As anticipated, Senate bud-get changes did not includeexpansion of Medicaid underthe federal health insuranceoverhaul. Senators also leftout a tax increase on high-volume oil and gas drillersproposed by Kasich andexpansion of the state salestax to include professionalservices like lawyers. Thebill keeps a provision effec-tively de-funding PlannedParenthood by putting it atthe back of the line for publicfunds.Faber said the idea of changing Medicaid is notdead but will be taken up ina separate bill. A placeholdermeasure could come in thenext two weeks.CLEVELAND (AP) —These Ohio lotteries weredrawn Tuesday:
