Just wanted to remind you that while we’re busy dealing mostly with Senate Bill 5, our companion site, Ohio Budget Watch, for our coverage of the State budget and news clips concerning the budget.
We’ll do a live chat just as we did for the State of the State during Kasich’s budget town hall next Tuesday, but we’ll do it there as opposed to here as our intention is to make OBW our one-stop site for budget news and commentary.
- The Dayton Daily News is reporting that Kasich has been asked to consider selling as many as FIVE prisons to private companies and cuts to a program that subsidizes child care for the working poor in Ohio.
- Kasich has privately told Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory that Kasich is killing state funding for the streetcar plan, despite the fact that it seems politics is being injected into what is supposed to be a non-political process.
Just want to make sure you’re getting both sides of the Plunderbund coin for coverage.
