Lt. Gov. Taylor Praises Senate for Prioritizing Regulatory Reform

Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor
COLUMBUS Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor today issued the following statement regarding S.B. 2, one of the Ohio Senates priority bills, which will put into law Executive Order 2011-01K. The order was signed by Governor John R. Kasich on January 10 and established the Common Sense Initiative (CSI) for regulatory reform in Ohio.
I am pleased that the Ohio Senate agrees with the concerns Governor Kasich and I share about Ohios regulatory environment and have made this issue a top priority, Taylor said. We are confident that comprehensive regulatory reform will help revive Ohios economy and create jobs by generating a more jobs-friendly environment. Ohio's business regulations - at times - are excessive, duplicative and costly, and can put Ohioans out of work. I am confident we can achieve the right balance of regulations that don't hinder our small businesses and protect the health and safety of Ohioans.
