Ohio House and Senate lawmakers are set to continue their efforts to reach a compromise on raising the state gas tax to fix deteriorating roads and bridges.
    
A joint Senate-House committee was scheduled to resume meeting Tuesday morning to iron out differences between their plans for the state Department of Transportation budget.
    
Gov. Mike DeWine and House Speaker Larry Householder, both Republicans, announced a deal Thursday under which the gas tax would rise by 11 cents per gallon and diesel fuel by 20 cents. But Senate lawmakers haven’t agreed to that.
    
Householder said last week that the current Senate proposal involved an 8.5 cents-per-gallon gasoline increase and a 13 cents-per-gallon increase on diesel.
