League begins work to enact priority state legislative items

Published by: Emily Leite

January 27, 2021 | Government Affairs

The legislative process can often be unpredictable, which is why it’s essential to have contingency plans in case things go off schedule. For instance, the Ohio General Assembly ended their work last year without addressing two of the League’s top state priority items; House Bill 38, a comprehensive regulatory relief bill, and House Bill 368, the Ohio Computer Crimes Act, which would modernize state law to combat cyber-crimes.

Our team has reached out to the bill sponsors, and they plan to re-introduce it in the coming weeks. Further, House and Senate leadership have assured us that the bills will receive immediate consideration. When the bills are assigned a number and referred to a committee, we will encourage passage through Voter Voice.

Thank you for your patience and commitment to seeing these bills get signed into law. If you have questions about these or any other legislative issue, reach out to League, Chief Advocacy Officer Emily Leite.
