DeWine says there are no other solutions outside a gas tax increase while warning that any increase simply keeps Ohio from falling behind. He wouldn't provide details before Thursday's announcement.

The Ohio Department of Transportation director said earlier this month that the state's road maintenance and infrastructure are facing an "impending crisis" unless more funding is provided.
