06.13.16 - Guest Column From State Representative Terhar: Making Small Claims Courts More Effective

 

The limit on amounts that Small Claims Courts in Ohio may consider has not increased in nearly 20 years. This makes it difficult for small businesses to recover debts.  Small claims courts provide a forum for parties seeking minor monetary recoveries in civil disputes without legal representation or expert witnesses. If the amount claimed is over the small claims limit,  potential costs to bring a suit in a higher court may outweigh the potential recovery and small-business owners with limited resources may choose to forgo seeking payment altogether.

05.16.16 - Guest Column From State Representative Lou Terhar: Capital Budget Supports Care For Cincinnati's Most Vulnerable

 

This month, I voted in support of Senate Bill 310, also known as the Capital Budget bill. This legislation invests a total of nearly $2.6 billion in funding across Ohio for projects like infrastructure, workforce development and the arts. A considerable portion of the funding goes toward supporting repairs and renovations at primary and secondary education facilities through the Ohio School Facilities Commission. In addition, part of the funding goes toward higher education needs, such as facility maintenance and learning programs. For Cincinnati, I believe there were three major investments that will foster better care for some of our most vulnerable citizens.
