The meeting also included updates on:

  • Issue 2, the OMA-opposed ballot initiative to legalize recreational use of marijuana;
  • Efforts to enhance Ohio’s electricity market, as proposed by the OMA-supported Senate Bill 143; and
  • Changes made to the Commercial Activity Tax (CAT) under the current state budget (see related story in this Leadership Briefing).
