State Representative Mark Romanchuk (R-Ontario) today applauded the Ohio House of Representatives’ passage of House Bill 486, legislation that makes changes to the coordination of workforce development and economic development programs.

Specifically, House Bill 486 focuses on a number of issues including the evaluation of workforce programs by the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation; compliance incentive programs; innovation financial assistance or research and development financial assistance; and synchronization of economic development report due dates.

“I was proud to support HB 486 because it streamlines state workforce programs, making it easier for Ohioans, especially those living in Richland County, find good paying jobs and help our state continue its momentum,” Rep. Romanchuk said.

House Bill 486 is a component of the Mid-Biennium Review, a package of bills that addresses recommendations from the Kasich Administration and cabinet directors on how to better administer and improve the programs they oversee.

House Bill 486 will now undergo consideration in the Ohio Senate.
