Ohio initiative aims for regulatory reform
In an important step toward the revitalization of Ohio’s economy, Lt. Governor Mary Taylor is leading CSI Ohio: Common Sense Initiative (CSI) to reform the state's regulatory policies. CSI Ohio officially launched January 10 of this year, and its main purpose will be to review the state’s regulatory system to eliminate excessive and duplicative rules that stand in the way of job creation.
One of our Chamber Board members, Crystal Faulkner of Cooney Faulkner & Stevens, has been appointed to the new statewide Small Business Advisory Council, established as part of the Ohio Common Sense Initiative. Crystal is one of nine members of the council, and the only one appointed from Cincinnati.
Members of the Small Business Advisory Council advise CSI Ohio on the business impact of new rules and regulations. The Lt. Governor is confident that comprehensive regulatory reform generated by the initiative will help revive Ohio’s economy and create jobs by generating a more jobs-friendly environment, but your help is needed. With your feedback, CSI Ohio will be more able to accomplish these goals.
Get involved by contacting Mark Hamlin, Lt. Governor Taylor's regulatory reform director, at 614-728-6716 or firstname.lastname@example.org and explaining what burdensome red tape, rules, and regulations are standing in the way of your business.
