Senate president Bill Harris says, "No matter how tight the next budget, the Senate will not support any effort to raise taxes."

Republican Jon Husted will be leaving his post as Ohio House speaker. He says he doesn't know how Democrats will resolve school funding, provide heath care boost the state's economy without raising taxes.
