The Ohio Senate this week passed Senate Bill 75, legislation aimed at expanding opportunities in Ohio's vibrant agritourism industry.

"Senate Bill 75 will help protect Ohio's budding agritourism industry, which is a rapidly growing sector across the state," said State Senator Larry Obhof (R-Medina). “It is particularly important in the 22nd District, where a number of farms are also major tourist destinations.”

The bill removes regulatory and liability barriers that restrict the growth of small businesses in Ohio's agritourism industry. Agriculture contributes more than $100 billion to the state's economy every year, and tourism is a growing part of that sector of the economy. 

Among other things, the bill clarifies the standards for civil liability for those who own and operate agritourism locations.

Senate Bill 75 will now be sent to the Ohio House for further consideration.
