According to the article, in 2008 Ohio's leaders were looking for ways to cut spending costs and overcrowding in state prisons.

 

The comma should come after 'the article', as that is the end of the intro. phrase.  'In 2008' does not belong with the introductory phrase because it explains the when for Ohio's leaders, not the when for the article.

 

Also, since there is more than one cost, the word used should be 'costs'.
