In The Region:

As state senators begin work on the budget, House Democrats have come out with their own tax-cut proposal to counter one in the House Republican version of the spending plan.

Rep. Mike Foley of Cleveland says the Democrats' proposed 10 percent income tax cut for all but the two top tax brackets would be paid for by refiguring a 7 percent across-the-board cut Republican House members passed.

“This proposal would not only provide a tax cut for middle class Ohioans. But would provide an additional $118 million for schools. … This targeted middle class tax cut would apply to all Ohioans making under $105,000 a year, or all those in the bottom seven tax brackets we have set up in the state.”

Democrats are in a very small minority in the Statehouse.

But Foley says he hopes their plan will be considered when lawmakers have to work out the differences between the House and Senate versions of the budget.

Democrats say the rise in the unemployment rate by a half a point between December and March shows that tax cuts aren’t working to create jobs. The Kasich administration has said Ohio is in a slow recovery, which will include periods where the jobless rate will rise or remain steady.
