Defeated Kasich Alters Agenda

***  With his job approval rating in the toilet, Ohio Gov. John Kasich has changed his mind about some items on his agenda.


At the end of a speech Tuesday in Lorain, Gov. John Kasich made a passing reference to his stinging defeat at the polls last week when voters overwhelmingly killed Senate Bill 5....

...No longer apparently on the front burner is major reform of Ohio's workers' compensation system, one of the things he named as a top priority upon taking office early this year.

Among the ideas discussed was the injection of a private insurance element to compete with the state-run insurance fund for injured workers.....

Insurance executives around Ohio will be weeping into their martinis.

****  Have you and your spouse been married a long time?  Gov. John Kasich is looking for you!
