Ohio chambers voice concern on proposed tax-related provisions in House Bill 64


Greater Cleveland Partnership President and CEO Joe Roman, who chairs the Ohio Metro Chambers Coalition, testified today before the Ohio Senate Ways and Means Committee to express "the concerns of our Coalition and the members that we serve, as we do not believe the as-introduced version of House Bill 64 presents the right tax plan for Ohio.”

He said that “soon after the release of the executive budget, the Coalition commissioned a study from EY to analyze key components of the proposed tax reform plan to better understand the direct impact the proposal would have on the business community. Based on the results of that study…the House-passed version is a step in the right direction and we want to work with the Senate to continue and strengthen that proposal.”

The Ohio Metro Chambers Coalition is made up of the Ohio Chamber and Ohio’s eight largest metro chambers of commerce, representing small and large businesses across our state. The Coalition has worked together for the past several years to jointly advocate on state issues of common interest, including state budgets, education, Medicaid, tax reform and transportation policy issues.
