Officials in Ohio have added $235 million to the state's rainy day fund.
The transfer brings the fund's total to $482 million, far exceeding the 89 cent balance it held before Gov. John Kasich took office last year.
Officials say the balance increase was made possible by solid tax revenue growth and under-spending in the Medicaid program.
The Republican governor said Tuesday he wasn't going to spend the money, even if others call for it.
Some Democrats have said more should be done to help schools and local governments that have grappled with state budget cuts.
Kasich said Ohio has made economic gains, but still faces uncertainty.
