COLUMBUS, Ohio (OFBF) - Leaders from the Ohio General Assembly will detail Ohio’s budget challenges and potential fixes during this week’s broadcast of Town Hall Ohio.

Senate Majority Floor Leader Keith Faber, R-Celina, and House Majority Whip Jay Goyal, D-Mansfield, will discuss the $3.2 billion dollar deficit, which has forced the state into its second week-long interim budget. The two lawmakers will talk about additional spending cuts, the possibility of tax increases and the controversial proposal to close the budget gap by approving video lottery terminals at Ohio horse racing tracks.
