CATO Institute released its most recent Fiscal Policy Report Card of America's Governors. Ohio's John Kasich comes in with a solid B.
Kasich tied with New Jersey's Chris Christie and one point above Wisconsin's Scott Walker. Mike Pence (Indiana) also received a B, while Kentucky's Steve Beshear received a D.
From the report: "Governor Kasich has held state spending down the last two years, and he has pursued a variety of tax reforms. In 2011 he signed a repeal of the Ohio estate tax, which had been one of the most onerous estate taxes in the nation."
