Noon news headlines for April 12, 2013
Ohio GOP chairman candidate owes taxes; Hospitals and Medicaid expansion; FirstEnergy subsidiary investigated


 
  • Ohio GOP chairman candidate owes taxes
  • Hospitals and Medicaid expansion
  • FirstEnergy subsidiary investigated
  • Ohio GOP chairman candidate owes taxes
    A new report says a candidate to lead Ohio’s Republican Party owes more than $500,000 in state and federal taxes.
    The Dayton Daily News reports that Matthew Borges says he's on a payment plan for some of the taxes but disputes most of them. Borges says the tax liens stem from the sale of his home being improperly reported as income in 2007.
    Borges has broad Republican support, including Gov. Kasich, Speaker of the House John Boehner and Sen. Rob Portman. He’s running against Portage County Tea Party president Tom Zawistowski, who surprised many when he announced his candidacy last week.


    Hospitals frustrated by removal of Medicaid expansion
    The head of the Ohio Hospital Association is telling state lawmakers they’re hindering the state's ability to prosper by dropping Gov. Kasich’s plan to extend Medicaid coverage under the Affordable Care Act. Hospital Association President Mike Abrams says hospitals are frustrated that the state House stripped Medicaid expansion from its version of the two-year budget. About 366,000 Ohioans would be eligible for health coverage beginning in 2014 under the expansion, and Ohio would see $13 billion from the federal government over the next seven years to pay for the newly eligible.

    FirstEnergy subsidiary investigated
    A subsidiary of Akron-based FirstEnergy is being investigated by the Maryland Public Service Commission.
    Complaints allege Potomac Edison overbilled some western Maryland customers by failing to read their meters as often as required.
    The Frederick, Maryland-based Sugarloaf Conservancy says the company read their members' meters an average of four times during a 13-month period in 2011 and 2012, instead of every other month as required.
    Potomac Edison acknowledged in July that it missed some readings but said its estimates were fair. It said it would put more meter readers in the field.

    Sports
    The Cavs welcome the New York Knicks to the Q tonight, and then head to Philadelphia on Sunday to take on the 76ers. Their season ends next Wednesday after games against the Miami Heat and Charlotte Bobcats.
    And the Indians kick off a home-stand tonight against the Chicago White Sox.
