Brown fights for tax cut

December 6, 2012

Democratic U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown is clear on the first step to avoiding the fiscal cliff — extend tax cuts for the middle class which would help nearly all Ohio taxpayers.

On Wednesday, Brown called on House Speaker John Boehner to schedule a vote as soon as possible on the Middle Class Tax Cut Act — legislation which already passed the Senate in a bipartisan vote in July and that would extend middle class tax cuts for the 99 percent of Ohio families making less than $250,000 per year.

The local judge charged with overseeing the budget for the Auglaize County Common Pleas Court says it is hard to predict what funding will be needed in 2013.

Judge Fred Pepple requested $229,193 in his budget for next year during a meeting Tuesday with the Auglaize County commissioners. It is the same amount his office requested for 2012.

The highest costs reflected in the budget include $141,000 for employee salaries, $22,000 for juror fees, $21,150 for employee benefits, and $11,000 for contract services.
