Since 2011, Lieutenant Governor Mary Taylor has led Ohio’s Common Sense Initiative (CSI) Office which is intended to promote innovation and common sense regulation of Ohio’s businesses. The Executive Order creating CSI explicitly recognized that Ohio’s business community is a partner in the state’s success, so while regulations play an important role in promoting fair competition and protecting the public, these regulations should do so in a way that also facilitates economic growth and opportunity.
The CSI Office functions as a partnership between the Administration, state agencies, the business community, and the public to develop a regulatory framework that balances the important need for regulation with the equally important need to promote economic opportunity and job creation. It has created a more jobs-friendly regulatory climate in Ohio by independently evaluating the economic impact of state agency regulations on Ohio businesses.
Continued reform and updating of Ohio’s regulations will help Ohio’s economy and foster a more business-friendly environment for job creation, but CSI needs your help. Below is a link to this year’s CSI business survey. CSI is hoping to reach as broad a pool of businesses and business organizations as possible, so they are asking you please consider completing this brief survey. It should take about 5-7 minutes to complete. Your feedback is important to the success of the CSI Office and will help them identify specific areas where government hinders Ohio’s business community’s ability to create jobs. All responses are anonymous unless you choose to provide your contact information at the end of the survey.
