As legislators returned from their summer break this week, Governor Kasich was asked about his legislative agenda for the second half of 2011.

He said his administration is still considering a capital projects budget bill that has been on hold since 2008 because of cash shortages.  He also said he will pursue upgrades to the state’s worker-training program.

Also on the table are: the privatization of the Ohio Turnpike and Ohio lottery and possible changes to the state’s school-funding formula along with possible mid-term budget amendments.
