In today’s edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, Jesse Hathaway, managing editor of Budget & Tax News speaks with Tom Lampman. Lampman is a fiscal policy fellow at the Buckeye Institute for Public Policy. Hathaway and Lampman talk about a new report about billions of dollars in wasteful spending by the Ohio state government.
Lampman talks about how state governments can rein in runaway spending and be more responsible with other people’s money. Examples of Buckeye State pork include subsidizing county fairs, grape advertisements, venture crony capitalism, and many other unnecessary expenditures. Lampman explains how other states can also learn from the report by getting out of the private sector and sticking to the core functions of government.
