There are many important issues that Ohioans have been facing during the past few years. As a state representative, I have worked on legislation that deals with a variety of topics. But since taking office at the beginning of last year, I have tried to keep my focus predominantly on how to improve Ohio’s economy, build up businesses, and create jobs. This, after all, affects many other areas of our lives.
We have had other pieces of legislation to create jobs, though. This includes a bill that created the Common Sense Initiative Office, which looks closely at rules and regulations state agencies create to ensure they are not unfairly hindering small businesses in Ohio. Being buried in paper work and trying to remain compliant can be a burden on many Ohio small businesses, which create the vast majority of jobs in this state. The CSI Office will help these businesses to better operate and grow.
I realize that Ohioans are tired of being in the economic doldrums, and they are also tired of being tired. I’m doing everything I can at the state level to get us on the right path to economic prosperity, and I will continue to keep my focus on getting people back to work for the months and years ahead.
