In this week's PoliticsOhio, Emily McCord speaks to Statehouse Bureau reporters Bill Cohen and Jo Ingles to discuss the Ohio House version of the budget, which includes a 7% income tax cut for Ohioans, a rejection of Governor Kasich's proposal to extend Medicaid coverage and the tax on oil and gas drillers. Jo Ingles reports the house also got rid of a plan to ban educator's for talking about "gateway sex", but that it's a conversation that's likely to come up again.
Last week, Governor Kasich unveiled his new school funding formula with a lot of fanfare but few details on what it would actually mean for districts. Now, districts are finding just how much they would get under the new formula. StateImpact Ohio’s Ida Lieszkovszky reports some people are surprised by the numbers.
