Columbus - 

State Representative Wes Retherford (R-Hamilton) recently introduced legislation that would help veterans when applying for a license with a licensing agency.

House Bill 238, joint-sponsored by Representative Andrew Brenner (R-Powell), would establish the Veterans License Fee Waiver Program. Facilitated through the Secretary of State’s office, the program would allow men and women who have served in the United State military to receive a waiver when filing a document with the office. This would permit veterans to have a single license fee waived.

“Ohio has done a wonderful job of promoting the entrepreneurial spirit. Over the last few years, we have really pushed to improve the transition to military to civilian life,” said Retherford. “House Bill 238 moves Ohio forward even more. By allowing first time business filers who served our country the opportunity to do so without the fee is a small step, but it shows that we are serious about helping our heroes return to work.”

House Bill 238 now awaits a committee designation.
