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.
