Members of the Ohio Senate Local Government, Public Safety and Veterans Affairs Committee heard proponent testimony this week on Senate Bill 68, which revises Ohio’s deceptive trade practices act to strengthen civil and criminal penalties related to the installation of unsafe used tires. Companion legislation (House Bill 42) is being heard in the House.
The legislation, jointly sponsored by Senators Frank LaRose (R–Hudson) and Cliff Hite (R–Findlay), is supported by rubber and tire manufacturers.
