Columbus - 
The Governor recently signed legislation sponsored by State Senator Larry Obhof (R- Medina) that updates Ohio's statute of limitations for actions on written contracts, bringing the state more in line with the limitations periods in other states. Senate Bill 224 lowers Ohio's statute of limitations for written contracts from 15 years to eight years. Prior to the bill's passage, Ohio had one of the longest limitations periods in the nation, as roughly 40 states have periods of six years or less. "Senate Bill 224 will lower record-keeping costs for small businesses, and will help put Ohio on equal footing with neighboring states," Obhof said.
State Senator Larry Obhof represents the 22nd Ohio Senate District, which encompasses Medina, Holmes and Wayne counties and portions of Ashland County. For more information, please visit
