Jobs & the Economy

The key to a strong economy is a free market system that values the contributions of every American worker. We unlock this growth with lower taxes, innovation, reduced red tape, and empowered consumers. A light regulatory structure – one where businesses and consumers have the freedom and flexibility to operate, innovate, and make real decisions –  is essential to reaching this goal and moving our economy forward. We must ensure the regulations we have are necessary, efficient, and enable growth.

We must also take steps to empower Ohioans to work. Addressing the “skills gap” facing our country is essential to unlocking continued economic advancements. This includes giving our states and local agencies the flexibility to address their region’s unique employment needs, and the resources to equip those currently on the sidelines for entry into the workforce. Ohioans want to work, and America needs a 21st century workforce equipped to build and grow our 21st economy.
