Ohio Lieutenant Governor Mary Taylor was in Richland County Monday morning to meet with a dozen local business owners.

The hour-long round-table discussion at Milliron Recycling included education reform, the state's Common Sense Initiative to reform business regulations, workers' compensation, drug testing of job applicants, and a tax cut plan to make Ohio more business-friendly.

Governor John Kasich's two-year budget proposal includes a 20% income tax cut for individuals phased in over three years, and a 50% income tax cut for businesses.

It also includes a broadening of the services subject to the state sales tax, and a half-percent reduction of it.

The total tax reduction would be $1.4-billion.

Taylor says she's impressed by the suggestions the business leaders made.

The meeting included Mark Romanchuk, who's involved in debating these reforms as a state representative, and who understands the need for improving Ohio's business climate as the owner of P-R Machine Works in Ontario.
