State Issue 1- Argument For

A YES vote on Issue 1 will help create more good jobs for Ohioans, without raising taxes.

Issue 1 will help grow Ohio's economy and help our state attract and retain high paying jobs. Issue 1 should be approved for the following reasons:

  • ISSUE 1 WILL HELP CREATE JOBS. Issue 1 will help create thousands of new, high-paying jobs in every region of Ohio - jobs in advanced manufacturing, information technology, biomedical products, and other high-growth industries.

  • ISSUE 1 DOES NOT RAISE TAXES. Bonds authorized through Issue 1 will not require a tax increase now or in the future. Repayment of bonds has already been factored into the state's long-range financial plans.

  • ISSUE 1 WILL HELP KEEP OUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN CLOSE TO HOME. In recent years, thousands of Ohioans left the state in the pursuit of good jobs. Issue 1 will help create the kind of good jobs that will help keep our children and grandchildren close to home.

  • ISSUE 1 IS PART OF A BROAD ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT PLAN. Issue 1 is part of the state's largest economic development initiative ever launched. With federal and private sector support, Issue 1 will help generate $6 billion of new investment for Ohio's economy, leading to the creation of thousands of good jobs in all regions of Ohio.

  • ISSUE 1 HAS BROAD BIPARTISAN SUPPORT. Issue 1 is supported by Republicans, Democrats, Independents, business, labor and higher education leaders. Nearly every major newspaper is supporting Issue 1.

Issue 1 will help create more good jobs for Ohioans, a healthier, stronger economy for Ohio, all without raising taxes.

Vote YES on Issue 1.
