State Budget to be Unveiled Next Week


Governor Kasich will unveil his final two-year state budget next week. Budget bills allocate state funds for public purposes but they also frequently become vehicles for revisions to taxes and other laws. In prior budget bills, Governor Kasich had proposed modification to business taxes, frequently with the goal of personal income tax reductions. Tune-in Monday, January 30, at 1:00 p.m. to watch the press conference. Official budget documents will be housed on the Ohio Office of Budget & Management website. OMA will provide analyses of budget bill provisions that directly affect manufacturers. The OMA Tax Committee will take a deep dive into the tax and expenditure provisions within the budget with invited policymakers when it meets on February 16. Also, the OMA Government Affairs Committee will provide a budget status and manufacturing advocacy game plan at its March 15 meeting. Register to attend OMA committee meetings in person or by phone.  1/26/2017
