Gov. John Kasich has signed a $2.6 billion capital budget, which covers state spending on infrastructure, colleges and universities, and community projects for the coming two years. Ohio Public Radio’s Jo Ingles reports.
Kasich says this capital budget provides needed money for roads, bridges, schools and the opioid crisis. He says this budget is fiscally solid and the state is better off than when he took the helm in 2011.
“We were a fiscal wreck. A fiscal wreck. We were $8 billion in the hole.”
Many Democrats dispute that number.
