State Rep. Alicia Reece (D- Cincinnati) released the following statement while the Hamilton County Commissioners today held a public meeting on the adoption of a county-wide utilities services tax:

“At a time when residents are still struggling to make ends meet, many have told me they cannot afford an extra tax on gas and electric, phone bills, and other telecommunications services.

“While the state has an outdated law from fifty years ago on the books, it has not been implemented by any county to date. I am committed to correcting this law at the state level, and I ask that these types of issues always be presented to the voters so they can decide.”
