COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio Gov. John Kasich had some critical words for the Ohio Chamber of Commerce, blasting the group for criticizing his failed plan to lower income and business taxes by expanding the state's sales tax to include most services.
The Republican governor had proposed to lower income taxes for all Ohioans by 20% and institute a 50% tax cut for businesses on their first $750,000 of net income. To pay for that, Kasich wanted to expand the sale-tax base, a move that the chambers of commerce strenuously opposed.
During his keynote speech at the Columbus Chamber of Commerce's Government Day Luncheon on Friday, The Columbus Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/12AgywI) that Kasich criticized the Ohio Chamber for focusing on expanding the sales tax.
A spokeswoman for the chamber declined to comment.
