One of the primary goals of the Ohio House during the 131st General Assembly has been to keep more money in Ohioans’ pockets. With more financial security and more expendable income, Ohioans can feel comfortable making big purchases and buying daily necessities, spurring the economy and encouraging its continued growth. One way the state legislature has strived to accomplish this goal is with a sales tax holiday.
This year marks the two-hundred and fortieth anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. We commemorate this occasion with much pride and patriotism; we spend it celebrating and enjoying time with our friends and families. While such festivities are appropriate for remembering the birth of our great nation, let us also join in reflecting upon what exactly has made this country of ours so great.
