Columbus - 
Recognizing his commitment to low taxes, fiscal restraint and smaller government, State Senator Bill Coley (R-Liberty Township) was recently named the "Watchdog of the Treasury" by the United Conservatives of Ohio. Having been granted this honor based on his fiscally responsible voting record during the 129th General Assembly, this award marks Senator Coley's fourth General Assembly as a Watchdog of the Treasury.

In addition to being honored as a fiscally responsible legislator, Senator Coley has also recently been recognized by the Ohio Chamber of Commerce for his 100% pro-business, lifetime voting record.

"With each vote I cast in the Senate, I always remind myself that it is not the state's money we are spending, but the people's hard-earned tax dollars," said Coley. "Individuals and businesses across the state have tightened their belts to adjust to the economic climate and the state should be no different. By shrinking government and supporting business, we create an environment where all Ohioans can be more prosperous."
