COLUMBUS—On Tuesday, Senate President Larry Obhof (R-Medina) appointed State Senator Scott Oelslager (R-North Canton) to the Tax Expenditure Review Committee.

"We have worked hard to improve the business climate here in Ohio by enabling job creation through tax relief," said Senator Oelslager. "In doing so, we need to ensure these organizations and businesses are meeting policy standards and are positively impacting the economic development of our state as a result of the exemptions they are receiving."

The committee is comprised of members of the Ohio Senate and House of Representatives to periodically review annual tax credits, deductions and exemptions in Ohio’s tax code. Each deduction and exemption will be reviewed at least once every eight years to determine if they are meeting policy objectives and are impacting economic development.

Last week was the busiest yet in Columbus with a number of bills moving through committees and onto the Senate and House floors for votes. Not only did we celebrate March 1 as Ohio’s Statehood Day, recognizing the day in 1803 when the Ohio General Assembly met for the first time, but legislators were also visited by a number of statewide advocacy groups that championed their great causes. I am excited to share some of the effective legislation my colleagues and I were able to pass as we continue to serve our Ohio citizens.


COLUMN: Protecting Victims Of Dating Violence, Neurofibromatosis Awareness And Serving Ohioans


My colleagues in the Ohio Senate and I are working hard to protect victims of dating violence and ensure that our citizens have access to domestic violence shelters to receive the care they need. Last week, I was proud to co-sponsor House Bill 1, sponsored by State Representatives Nathan Manning (R – North Ridgeville) and Emilia Sykes (D – Akron). This legislation expands Ohio law, authorizing courts to issue domestic violence protection orders to protect victims of dating violence in current or former dating relationships. Passed unanimously by members of the Ohio Senate, House Bill 1 also expands resources to provide greater access to domestic violence shelters for victims.
