01.16.13 - Teamwork Leading To New Jobs For Southern Ohio

 

As the 129th General Assembly was drawing to a close last year, everyone was extremely busy staying on top of all the bills, votes, amendments, and interested party meetings. We were in a lame duck session, and it was rapidly drawing to a close. Few members had any spare time, and amidst that chaos, we received word that an employer in southern Ohio was having trouble with an unintended consequence of Ohio’s tax code and feared that they were going to have to move to Texas. They did not want to do this, and needed assistance to stay in our state. But the hour was late, both for their business plan and the legislative session, and prospects seemed dim. Nevertheless, I joined forces with other state representatives and worked to save these jobs and create hundreds of new ones.
