What Have We Done For You This Week?
This week, the Ohio Trucking Association and its members met with a group of legislators and state officials to find ways to improve the state's permitting system. This included a conversation about making Ohio's regulatory environment more competitive with surrounding states. There is a lot of interest in: streamlining the permitting systems; making the process of getting permits easier to navigate; potentially creating a multi-jurisdictional permitting system; and putting some guard rails in place to establish training guidelines for enforcement of the state's size and weight laws. Do you have suggestions about how to improve the state's permitting system? Let us know by contacting Tom Balzer at tom@ohiotrucking.org.
