Ohio Governor Mike DeWine enters the chambers of the Ohio House of Representatives before delivering his State of the State address at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus on Wednesday.

We break down what it all means on this week’s episode of Ohio Politics Explained.

It’s a podcast from the USA TODAY Network Ohio Bureau where we catch you up on the state’s political news in 15 minutes or less. This week, host Anna Staver was joined by bureau chief Anthony Shoemaker. 

1) Big ideas

Gov. Mike DeWine gave his first state of the state speech in three years on Wednesday and laid out an ambitious set of goals for Ohio. 

He talked about investing in mental health care, state parks, Appalachia, police training and water projects. 

Republican leaders in the House and Senate said they were open to the governor’s ideas, but had yet to see specifics–including a price tag.
