In a $69.8 billion state budget stretching 2,600 pages, there ought to be a little something for all of us, right?. Well, check out these goodies just for you, if you ... Need a little extra cash: You are getting a 4% state income tax cut, amounting to $25 a year for an individual with a taxable income of $41,000 and $50 annually for a family of four making $73,000. And if you're among "the working poor," you caught a break with elimination of the two lowest tax brackets — meaning those earning less than $21,750 a year will pay no state income taxes.

Missy Mitchell: pretty soon our fishing license will cost as much as our license plates. why is Ohio so ass backwards

Rebecca Babjak: It sure didn't take long for the state politicians to put a hole in the new Puppy Mill regulations to benefit large-volume breeders (puppy mills) to add to the suffering of defenseless animals. How in the world does this have ANY impact on the State budget?? Why is this even in the state budget????

Robert Hottinger: So, if I read that last part right, I can be in trouble for concealing a switchblade but I can't be in trouble for an unlicensed concealed carry pistol? Shows just how screwed up our lobbied political system is. I guess 9 rounds are safer than a box cutter, right.

So in state residents will pay more for deer and turkey permits and out of state people will catch the break. Raises the gas tax 10.5¢ per gal. but gives us a paltry 4% break on state tax. What kind of upside down world is Ohio lawmakers living in? Fishing license goes up and that burns my ass. ~ Lori
