Ohio voters Tuesday approved 73 pecent of the 154 public school district tax issues on ballots. 

The Ohio School Boards Association says 82 proposals were renewals, and all but a few were approved. Voters gave less support to new school tax issues, as only 35 of those 72 issues were passed. The votes come as state lawmakers consider a possible overhaul of how Ohio schools are funded. The state's school-funding system has become a complicated patchwork since the system was found unconstitutional in 1997.
