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.

Transportation touches the lives of all Ohioans. With booming population growth in the Columbus Region, a sustainable, reliable, efficient, and innovative transportation and infrastructure network is essential to ensure the continued success of our region.

With a new State Transportation Budget being passed this week that will be effective July 2019, it is important to not only know how this budget will move the state and region forward regarding infrastructure, but also how it will impact Columbus region businesses. Join our panel of experts, including state legislators and Dr. Marchbanks, Director of ODOT.

The Franklin County Board of Elections will also be on site to display its new hybrid voting system, which will be used for the first time during the Primary Election on Tuesday, May 7, 2019. Learn more here
