Asking for Money in Taxing Times The November ballot in Northeast Ohio is crowded with more than a hundred tax issues for schools and local governments. Most are just asking to keep the share they're getting. Some seek tax hikes. Those who rely on the public money say their budgets have been stressed by cuts in state funding. They're stressed, too, worrying about asking for money in a tough economy amid a nationwide anti-tax movement. Thursday at 9 on the Sound of Ideas.
