Ohio legislature Kasich budget proposal includes cuts to shrinking school districts

COLUMBUS -- Gov. John Kasich’s budget director is hopeful the Legislature will move an executive budget school-funding proposal that would send less state money to some school districts that have lost students.

The governor has offered comparable law changes in the past, but lawmakers have balked at the move.

But Tim Keen, director of Ohio’s Office of Budget and Management, said: “I think we have the best opportunity we have had in a long time to get this guarantee proposal adopted into law. I think we have targeted it and crafted it in such a way that it just makes sense. If you lost an appreciable number of students, why should we continue to pay you the same amount of money that we previously did?”

Keen offered the comments after Kasich rolled out his proposed spending plan for the next two fiscal years.

1. Of course

let's cut school funding. It's always the best place to find extra money for tax cuts for the 1%.
