COLUMBUS—Ohio Senate President Larry Obhof (R-Medina) announced today that legislation aimed at increasing government efficiency and reducing bureaucracy has been signed into law by Governor Kasich.
House Bill 31, which the Senate passed earlier this year, was signed by Kasich last month. The bill eliminated a dozen government boards or commissions that are obsolete or non-operational.
"I'm glad we could work together with the Governor and our colleagues in the House to pass this bill," said Obhof. "The Senate will continue to push for efficiencies like these in state government, getting rid of unnecessary bureaucracy where we can."
This legislation follows a biennial budget cycle that saw significant efforts by the state Senate to restrain spending and streamline government.
