Ohio lawmakers continue to work behind closed doors on hammering out an agreement over how much to increase Ohio’s gas tax.
Gov. Mike DeWine wants an 18-cent increase on a gallon of gas. The Ohio House has approved an increase just under 11 cents. The Ohio Senate has proposed a six-cent increase. And Senate spokesman John Fortney said taxpayers have their own ideas.
“Certainly, a lot of calls, the majority of calls that have come into the senate offices, have been overwhelmingly against a major increase in the gas tax.”
