COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio's budget director says state revenues have "modestly exceeded" projections during the budget year that began in July.
Budget director Tim Keen says that has allowed the state to stash money in its rainy day fund. But he warns that assembling Ohio's next two-year budget will still have its challenges.
Gov. John Kasich's last budget closed a budget gap that approached $8 billion.
Keen told an audience Thursday at a post-election forum that while there's been a modest revenue recovery, Ohio isn't going back to business as usual in the budget to be introduced in February.
Passing a new two-year budget will be the primary focus of next year's legislative session.
