In 2024, Americans for Prosperity – Ohio will create a solid foundation to further advance our Buckeye Blueprint agenda, focusing on:  

  • Economic Opportunity for All Ohioans  
  • Educational Freedom for All Ohio Families  
  • Ending the Cronyist Era of Energy Policy  

Our priorities for the remainder of this General Assembly will tier up to what we will advocate for in the next budget cycle, and for the duration of the 136th General Assembly.  

What can be done
Buckeye’s 2025 Agenda
Section 1: Economic Freedom

Eliminate Ohio’s income tax 

By making budgeting more stable and predictable, Ohio budget conversations can focus more on improving value, such as by improving Ohio’s tax policies. Savings from scaling back low-value activities can provide the fiscal space for eventual elimination of the income tax. Ending the state’s income tax would give employers and employees in other states another financial incentive to live, work, and do business in Ohio—hopefully, while reversing the exodus from Ohio. And it would allow current Ohio families to keep more of their hard-earned income while making the state more affordable, creative, and dynamic.
