Columbus — Lawmakers moved Tuesday to give businesses relief from government regulations, endorsing a plan that could eliminate two rules for every new rule adopted in state government.
The basics of Senate Bill 1, a top priority for GOP senators, were incorporated into the state budget bill that is expected to get floor votes on Wednesday.
It aims to eliminate 30% of Ohio’s 247,000 rules and regulations in state administrative code over three years. If state agencies fail to meet this goal, they’d face a mandate that for each new regulation imposed, two rules would be eliminated.
Advocates for the regulatory reform say it’ll eliminate unnecessary, burdensome rules that hamper businesses.
