COLUMBUS - 

The Ohio House of Representatives today passed Senate Bill 98, legislation that expands the list of entities that may serve as statutory agents, which are designated by law to receive litigation documents and legal notices for corporations and other business entities.


Following the House passage, State Representative Jim Butler (R-Oakwood), released the following statement:


“I was pleased to see Senate Bill 98 pass the House with bipartisan support. This bill will help Ohio businesses by giving them more options when choosing an entity to serve as its statutory agent, which is required under law. Parts of this law had not been updated since 1955, so the legislation passed today takes meaningful steps to bringing it into modernity.”


Senate Bill 98 now awaits Governor John Kasich’s signature.
