Ohio House Committee Accepts Substitute Version of Municipal Tax Reform Bill
The Ohio House of Representatives' Ways and Means Committee accepted a substitute version of H.B. 5 today. H.B. 5 is the municipal tax reform bill being supported by the Municipal Tax Uniformity Coalition, a coalition of 30 Ohio business associations. The bill sponsors, Reps. Cheryl Grossman and Michael Henne, and Committee Chairman Rep. Peter Beck held a press conference today prior to the committee hearing in order to discuss the Substitute Bill. Also attending the press conference was Rep. Gary Scherer, who is on the Ways and Means Committee and who chaired this past summer's House Tax Reform Legislative Study Committee.
