Jon Husted on Budget & Economy
Most conservative state budget in 40 years
Jon reduced his office's spending by 16%--even as overall state spending increased by 17%--which resulted in $14 million in savings. This allowed him to cut the cost of starting & maintaining a new business in Ohio by 21% and announce he has eliminated
his office's need for taxpayer dollars entirely for the remainder of his term.
As House Speaker, Jon led the passage of the most conservative state budget in 40 years, which included at the time, the largest income tax cut in Ohio's history.

Liberation from Feds can reduce other problems
Husted said his priorities as governor would involve job creation, education and "liberation from the federal government."
Those three things, he believes, can cut to the heart of other problems in the state.
