Local government funds could also benefit under the plan
Senate Democrats have offered up more than 200 amendments to the state's proposed two-year budget. One of them would eliminate an income tax cut for some Ohioans.
The proposal would do away with a seven percent cut for any Ohioan making more than $106,000 and redirect that money instead to boost K-12 education funding. Sen. Nina Turner says it would mean about $508 million more for the state's schools.
Some of the money would go to pay for transportation, the rest could be used for other things like security or classroom spending.
