“Microbusiness” Approved by Ohio House of Representatives

NAWBO Columbus initiative, House Bill 5,  which creates a definition of “microbusiness”, passed the House of Representatives today unanimously by a vote of 96-0.  Helping microbusinesses navigate government regulation and reducing unnecessary rules and laws is part of Speaker Rosenberger’s platform, the Buckeye Pathway, which outlines the top issues in the Ohio House of Representatives this session.  NAWBO Columbus commends the sponsors of House Bill 5, Rep. Dorothy Pelanda (R-Marysville) and Rep. Theresa Gaverone (R-Bowling Green) and the entire House of Representatives, for recognizing the job creation and economic value that microbusinesses bring to Ohio.   NAWBO Columbus looks forward to working with the Ohio Senate and to see microbusinesses find a permanent place in the Ohio Revised Code.
