COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Republican Gov. John Kasich and GOP legislative leaders aren't saying whether they'll use strong Statehouse majorities next year to push some preferred issue onto Ohio's statewide ballot.

In a year-end review session Wednesday, Kasich answered "next question" when asked by a reporter whether the 60-vote margin in the Ohio House might be invoked to advance some ballot measure. The GOP will have both the House and Senate votes beginning in January to do so without Democratic help.

Kasich also declined to say whether he would work to support or oppose a right-to-work amendment limiting Ohio labor unions, if one were advanced by an outside group. He said he is like a horse with blinders on focusing on job creation.

He said his policies are transforming Ohio's economy.
