Business fee lowered

COLUMBUS — Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted has 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 Husted’s request, the fee associated with starting and maintaining a business in Ohio. The initiative was made possible by Husted’s strong financial stewardship. Since January 2011, Husted has saved more than $14 million, representing a 16 percent reduction in spending over the previous administration.
