Ohio’s Revenue Shortfall Wrecks Budget Plans

Posted Tuesday, May 12, 2009

Similar to almost every other state in the union, Ohio is on the precipice of a budgetary calamity. Here in Buckeye land, we're facing a 900 million dollar shortfall...and that's just for the next 50 days. Beyond that, lawmakers are wrangling with the next two-year budget. State Auditor Mary Taylor says the current version will result in deficits of four billion a year, maybe worse. Join us Tuesday morning at 9 to speak with top lawmakers and others about where they'll find new revenue or places to cut.
