Ohio’s Piglet Book finds $2.7 Billion in savings lawmakers could offer taxpayers, says The Buckeye Institute.
The Buckeye Institute has released its 2023 Piglet Book, which identifies more than $2.7 billion in savings for Ohio taxpayers and analyzes Ohio’s proposed biennial budget to offer specific savings for lawmakers to consider as they debate the state’s two-year budget.
“This year’s Piglet Book outlines how policymakers can offer more than $2.7 billion in savings to Ohio taxpayers while still providing essential services,” said Greg R. Lawson, a research fellow at The Buckeye Institute and author of the Piglet Book. “By implementing pro-growth tax policies, prioritizing necessary spending, closing tax loopholes, ending corporate welfare and government ‘philanthropy,’ and continuing the effort to fund students first, lawmakers can spur economic growth and prosperity for all Ohioans.”
