Secretary Husted Signs, Certifies New Business Fee Reduction
Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted, joined by members of Ohio’s Urban Leagues, signs House Bill 3, which makes Ohio the least expensive state in the region to start and maintain a business
COLUMBUS – Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted today received and signed House Bill 3 in accordance with the Ohio Constitution, which requires the Governor to present enacted bills to the Secretary of State to be filed.
House Bill 3 reduces, at Secretary Husted’s request, the fee associated with starting and maintaining a business in Ohio. The initiative was made possible by Secretary Husted’s strong financial stewardship. Since January 2011, Secretary Husted has saved more than $14 million, representing a 16% reduction in spending over the previous administration.
“The Secretary of State’s office is leaner, more efficient and more effective than it was four years ago, and I now have the opportunity to share our success with the people we serve by making Ohio the least expensive state in the region to start and maintain a business,” Secretary Husted said.
Secretary Husted was joined by leaders and members of Ohio’s Urban Leagues, who were early supporters of the initiative.
