COLUMBUS - 

State Senator Joe Uecker (R–Loveland) released the following statement today, praising Ohio’s position as the number-one job creator in the nation for the month of May: 

“Two years ago we took an $8 billion budget deficit and created a surplus of $1.5 billion. During the month of May the state of Ohio created 32,000 jobs, progressing more than any other state in the U.S.  These remarkable accomplishments are certainly a result of the pro-growth strategies that myself and fellow members of the state legislature have been working on over the past two years.” 

“We as state legislators are well aware that there is still more work to be done in helping provide jobs throughout Ohio.  That being said, we released a proposal yesterday which seeks to reduce income tax in Ohio by 10% and small business taxes by 50%. Our goal with this proposal is to continue to make Ohio a business friendly state where people want to stay and raise their families.”
