The two-year state budget proposed by the Ohio House includes some new tax cuts and takes away some tax breaks. It includes $300 million dollars worth of income tax breaks for low to moderate income Ohioans. 

House Speaker Larry Householder (R-Glenford) said the current business income deduction will be reduced. Right now, businesses don’t pay taxes on the first $250,000 of income, but he said that will go down to $100,000, making taxes fairer for all Ohioans.

Starting next week, Cleveland Hopkins Airport is making big changes to where taxis, limos, rideshare services and shuttles can drop-off passengers – a reversal of changes that were implemented just a few weeks ago.

As of January 1, commercial vehicles were prohibited from dropping passengers at the upper departures terminal roadway. Instead, there were staging areas set up several hundred yards away.

Visitors to Cleveland Hopkins Airport will see some big changes starting on New Year’s Day. The airport is increasing its fees for shuttle buses and taxis dropping people off at the airport, as well as moving the areas where they can pick up and drop off passengers.

Drivers for Uber and Lyft are going to have to buy a $400 license to wait for fares at Akron-Canton Airport.

The new permits, which go into effect in a week, are the same price as the ones purchased by cab and limo companies who want to wait for fares on airport property. Airport spokeswoman Lisa Dalpiaz says she hopes rideshare companies will decide to cover some of the costs once they start to get feedback from their drivers.
