COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- The northwest Ohio city of Lima is preparing to host Gov. John Kasich as he delivers his third annual State of the State address, the second in a row outside the Statehouse.

The speech's location outside Columbus on Tuesday isn't the only thing that's unconventional.

So is its hour of 6:45 p.m., a departure from previous noontime addresses.

Kasich will use the address to tout his $63.2 billion, two-year budget.

The spending blueprint includes a new school-funding formula and expansion of the Medicaid government health-insurance program. It also overhauls the tax code to lower rates on income, sales and small-business taxes while imposing sales taxes on many new services and increasing the rate on high-volume oil and gas extraction.

A protest including Democrats, autoworkers and others is expected.
