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.
