COLUMBUS—On Thursday, State Senator Theresa Gavarone (R-Bowling Green) went to the White House to hear President Trump’s remarks on the South Lawn regarding regulatory reform as the American economy surges out of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“As a small business owner, legislator and the Chairman of JCARR, I know all too well the negative impact that burdensome regulations can have on Ohioans,” Gavarone said. "It was an honor to be invited to the White House to hear remarks from President Trump about this important topic.”
Ohio has been a leader on regulatory reform, as shown by the passage of Senate Bill 1 earlier this year. The Senate also furthered those efforts by including the one-in, two-out rule as part of Ohio’s current budget.
Additionally, Gavarone supports Senate Bill 246, an effort to streamline Ohio’s occupational licensing processes for workers already licensed in other states, encouraging them to bring their skills to Ohio and contribute to the state's economy.
