COLUMBUS—Ohio Senate President Larry Obhof (R-Medina) today welcomed Linda McMahon, Administrator of the Small Business Administration (SBA) and member of President Trump’s cabinet, to the Ohio Statehouse to share ideas about how Ohio lawmakers and local leaders can help small businesses grow.

"Administrator McMahon's visit provided a unique opportunity for state and local officials to provide input and get feedback from the Trump Administration," said Obhof, who also spoke at the event. "We had a great discussion about issues affecting small businesses, including education and workforce development, as well as the SBA's recent disaster assistance efforts."

"As head of the SBA, I am making sure small businesses are part of the conversation, and their interests are reflected in any legislation we put forth," said McMahon.

As the 25th Administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), McMahon advocates on behalf of the 30 million small businesses in America and the nearly 1 million in Ohio. Small businesses employ nearly half of all American workers and account for 56.8 million jobs.
