COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio senators are expected to make additional adjustments to the state budget ahead of votes this week by a committee and the full Senate.

The Senate Finance Committee plans Tuesday to accept its latest changes to the more than $61 billion, two-year spending plan.

Majority Republicans want to boost state spending on K-12 education by more than $717 million compared to the current budget, which ends June 30.

Schools would see an additional $141.6 million in direct state aid under the Senate plan, compared with the funding formula the House passed in its version of the budget.

Senators have already pulled what's left of Gov. John Kasich's proposed income tax cut in favor of tax relief for small businesses.

Senate passage would send the measure into compromise talks.
