COLUMBUS - 

State Senator Larry Obhof (R-Medina) issued the following statement regarding Ohio's jobs report released earlier today. The report showed that Ohio’s unemployment rate dropped to 4.8 percent in July, down from 5.0 percent the prior month, as Ohio added roughly 11,400 new jobs:

“Ohio’s economy continues to improve, as we added jobs in manufacturing, education and health services,” said Obhof. “Common sense policies, including regulatory reform and lowering Ohioans’ tax burden, have improved the state’s business climate and are leading to better opportunities for Ohio families.”

Ohio's employers have added roughly 79,000 new jobs over the past year, and the state is up by more than 430,000 private sector jobs since January 2011.
