This week WYSO has reported on how hard the city of Dayton was hit when the mortgage crisis and great recession began more than five years ago. The resulting federal funds made available to cities like Dayton to stabilize neighborhoods, and how those funds are running out. In this week's Politics Ohio we continue our look at neighborhood stabilization; we spoke with Dayton City commissioner Matt Joseph about what other steps the city is taking to revitalize neighborhoods.
The Ohio house passed its version of the state budget last week, stripping Governor Kasich's proposal to expand medicaid and proposing an across-the-board income tax cut. Now the Senate makes its changes. Bill Cohen and Jo Ingles join Emily McCord to talk about their plans.
