Columbus - 

State Senator Bill Coley (R–Liberty Township) joined Ohio Governor John Kasich, Senate President Tom Niehaus, and Huntington Bank CEO Steve Steinour at a press conference this morning to announce that Huntington Bank will expand its credit card operation in Ohio. This expansion is a direct result of legislation approved by the General Assembly, designed to encourage private investment in Ohio's banking industry. Senator Coley sponsored the companion legislation, Senate Bill 218.

"Senate Bill 218 leveled the playing field for banks in Ohio by ensuring that they could offer interest rates that are competitive with national, out-of-state banks," said Coley. "I'm glad to see this legislation already bearing fruit in the form of 250 new Ohio jobs and millions in new investment."

Huntington's new Ohio investment will yield more than 250 new jobs over the next four years.

Senator Coley represents the 4th Ohio Senate District, which includes all of Butler County. He currently presides as the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Government Oversight & Reform. For more information, please visit
