Since joining the Ohio Senate, I have focused on improving the state’s business climate and setting the stage for economic growth. In recent years we have lowered Ohioans’ tax burden by about $5 billion – among the largest tax cuts in the country. We also passed significant regulatory reforms to help get rid of bureaucratic red tape and regulations that harm small businesses and stand in the way of job creation. I supported performance audits of state agencies, to ensure that your tax dollars are being spent wisely and that government services are provided as efficiently as possible.

As a state lawmaker and as your representative in Columbus, I have sought to restore the balance envisioned by the Founders. In far too many areas, state and local policies are determined by reference to federal laws. In other cases, Ohio is pushed toward supporting policies because federal money (in reality, your tax money) often has “strings attached.”  In some cases, like the President’s health care law, it is both.

Creating opportunities for Ohioans remains our top priority and we are committed to making Ohio a more attractive place for employers to do business."
