Prisons and Privatization To balance the budget, Governor Kasich has proposed leasing or selling some state-run entities to private enterprise. The state gets cash up-front, but gives up assets. Beyond the quick cash, does privatization benefit the state? We'll talk Monday about plans to sell off five prisons and to privatize Ohio's liquor distribution system. And we'll ask whether Ohio should consider leasing the turnpike or selling off the lottery. Join the conversation at 9 on 90.3.
