Kasich proposal aims to ease loss of tax

COLUMBUS — The pain of losing a tax that was expected to generate $11.8 million next year for Lucas County will be eased a bit by the state.

Under Gov. John Kasich’s two-year budget proposal submitted to lawmakers last week, Lucas County would receive $2.71 million in state money for the last quarter of 2017 toward $2.75 million the county expects to lose because of the repeal of a sales tax on managed-care companies providing Medicaid services.

For all of 2018, the state would replace $9.3 million of the estimated $11.8 million loss.

“It’s not 2018 that concerns me,” county Administrator Laura Lloyd-Jenkins said. “It’s 2019 and beyond that’s my real concern. Based on internal cuts, we can make up that $2.7 million [one-year] loss.”
