"So we think that's the right thing to do in Ohio, so we want to try, the governor feels very strongly, that we want to try to leverage this, phenomenal natural resource to help benefit Ohians, to help us, among other things, to drive personal income tax rates, continue to drive them down, to make Ohio more competitive over all," he says.
