This week, the OMA provided proponent testimony on Senate Bill 222. The bill would allow the state to pre-empt local government ordinances on packaging and auxiliary containers.
In its testimony, the OMA made the case for manufacturers of these products, stating: “When local jurisdictions in our state enact restrictions or outright bans on certain products or product content; or impose mandates to label certain products; or place a tax on certain products, it makes it very difficult for Ohio manufacturers to comply here at home, much less in the global economy.”
The bill is expected to have at least two more hearings in the Senate committee. 11/14/2019
