OMA Opposes County Regulation of Motor Vehicles


The OMA this week expressed caution to the sponsor of legislation that would empower county governments to regulate motor vehicles. Senator John Eklund (R-Chardon) introduced SB 30; he testified that the law change is needed to clarify a 1993 Supreme Court decision that took away local regulatory authority. In a joint letter with other business organizations, the OMA contends that the bill “will enable and encourage a patchwork of differing county-wide traffic regulations making it difficult, inefficient, and unsafe to move goods throughout the state of Ohio.”  2/16/2017
