Government Spotlight

The Chamber’s Government Spotlight series was created to engage our region’s businesses in the legislative process by educating about the impact of hot political issues of the day.

Ohio’s general election on Nov. 6 will turn over all five of Ohio’s constitutional officeholders creating inevitable change in our state government, especially the Office of the Governor who controls most state agencies. Is your business prepared to react to the developments that will ensue post-election? Our next program will bring together a panel of experts who will break down what you and your business can anticipate in areas of particular interest like healthcare, medical marijuana, trade and tariffs.
