President & CEO

what have we done for you this week?

This week, Ohio Trucking Association President & CEO Tom Balzer testified in front of the Ohio House of Representatives Finance Committee on the economic viability of the trucking industry and its contributions to the Ohio economy. Tom discussed the need in investing wisely in infrastructure. Tom also addressed the most efficient ways in paying for those improvements. The committee was actively engaged in a question and answer exchange with Tom, and the session included topics such as the international registration plan, the International Fuel Tax Agreements, overweight permitting in Ohio, and weighing of trucks. The OTA Legislative Committee meets monthly via conference call to discuss current Ohio Trucking Association policy positions as well as the implications of the current political landscape.
