A report says Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine’s budget proposal exceeds mandatory spending growth limits and must be cut.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that state lawmakers must also reduce the Republican governor’s spending plan because budget advisers say the state will take in less revenue than DeWine anticipated.

Lawmakers in the GOP-controlled House are expected to begin reducing the governor’s proposals later this month while adjusting spending to meet House priorities.

The state Senate then will have its own opportunity to look at spending once the budget reaches that chamber.

One challenge for the House is finding enough money to pay for its school-funding plan, expected to add $550 million on top of the governor’s own education proposal.
