Columbus - 
State Senator Gayle Manning (R- North Ridgeville) announced today that Senate Bill 73, legislation she introduced to help streamline regulations for manufacturers, has been signed into law by Ohio Governor John Kasich. Senate Bill 73 permits manufacturers of nonbeverage food items to purchase the alcohol needed for their products wholesale rather than in individual containers. This change will help companies reduce costs and use their employees more efficiently, allowing them to be more competitive. Previously, a company would have to purchase the alcohol needed from a retail store in the same containers sold to the public, and then have employees open each container individually before adding it to a product. "This issue has hindered the ability of numerous companies in Ohio to compete and expand, and I am pleased that we were able to work together with them and state officials to find a common sense solution," Manning said. "Enactment of Senate Bill 73 is a great step forward in eliminating barriers to job creation and retention, and I look forward to continuing our work in the Senate to reform government and get Ohioans back to work."
