Ohio’s New Budget Ohio has a new two-year budget in place. The $62 billion spending plan does a lot more than just lay out the state's fiscal expenditures. It reduces the income tax while raising the sales tax. It changes the way schools are funded, and it blocks the expansion of Medicaid. What's in? What's out? How did the governor use his veto pen, and how will all this affect you? Join host Rick Jackson Monday.
