Senate Approves Changes to Roegner's Regulatory Reform Bill
March 2, 2022
COLUMBUS—The Ohio Senate today voted to concur with House revisions to Senate Bill 9, sponsored by State Senator Kristina Roegner (R-Hudson), aimed at cutting burdensome regulatory red tape on Ohio’s businesses.
An amendment was included to provide additional funds for county boards of elections to help with costs of preparing for Ohio’s upcoming May primary elections.
"Senate Bill 9 will restore the number of regulations in Ohio to a healthy level," said Roegner. "Even when passed with the best of intentions, the accumulation of new laws and regulations overtime slow economic growth and employment opportunities. This bill will clean out the sludge in our state's economic engine."
Senate Bill 9, passed by the Senate last spring, requires Ohio's state agencies to reduce the overall number of state regulations by 30 percent over three years. It is targeted at eliminating outdated, unnecessary red tape and bringing Ohio's regulatory environment more in line with national averages.
Senate Bill 9 will now be sent to the Governor for his signature.
