COLUMBUS— On Thursday, State Senator Rob McColley (R-Napoleon) and Ohio Senate President Larry Obhof (R-Medina) went to the White House to support President Trump’s remarks on the South Lawn regarding regulatory reform as the American economy surges out of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Overly burdensome regulations are a barrier that limit opportunities for many of Ohio's businesses. said McColley. "It was an honor to be invited to the White House to hear remarks from President Trump today about this important topic, resulting in economic success and job growth in our state and the U.S.”

McColley sponsored Senate Bill 1, signed into law earlier this year as part of Ohio's current budget. The effort provides critical one in, two out rules, requiring two old and burdensome regulations to be removed for every new rule instituted.

Additionally, McColley sponsored Senate Bill 246, which would streamline Ohio’s occupational licensing processes for workers already licensed in other states, encouraging them to bring their skills to Ohio and contribute to our state economy.

"As the country quickly recovers from the pandemic, we need to make sure our workers and employers aren’t burdened by unnecessary or unintended bureaucratic red tape," said Obhof. "Combined with key trade reforms spearheaded by President Trump, I’m confident America will emerge stronger from the pandemic and return to record employment levels.”
