CHICAGO - The Ohio Senate this week is expected to vote on Gov. Ted Strickland's $1.57 billion, largely bond-funded plan to boost the state's sagging economy after the House overwhelmingly passed the measure late last week.

The Republican-controlled House passed the measure 88 to 9. The bill closely follows the Democratic governor's original proposal, but slashes in half a contentious proposal to use Ohio Turnpike revenues to pay for $200 million of bonds to finance a series of highway and bridge projects across the state.
