COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A state budget that gives schools half the innovation money sought by the governor, scraps his plans to expand Medicaid and sends Planned Parenthood to the back of the line for public family planning dollars is expected to advance a step in the Ohio House.

The House Finance and Appropriations Committee is expected to make additional changes before it votes on the two-year, $61.4 billion measure Tuesday afternoon. A full House vote could come on Thursday.

House Republican leaders dropped from the budget GOP Gov. John Kasich's (KAY'-siks) plan to extend Medicaid health coverage under the federal health law. A provision added to the measure would effectively de-fund Planned Parenthood.

The budget bill contains a 7 percent permanent income-tax reduction, while excluding the governor's proposed small-business tax cut.
