Lt. Governor Mary Taylor announced the release of the 2016 Annual Report of the Common Sense Initiative (CSI). Since 2011, Taylor has led CSI’s efforts to create a regulatory climate that makes it easier for job creators to do business in Ohio, while still protecting health and safety.
In 2016, CSI reviewed 2,309 rules, with more than 68 percent either amended or rescinded. This year also marks the second consecutive year that the number of rescinded business rules exceeded the number of new rules. The report demonstrates that the CSI rule review is having a significant and substantive influence on making Ohio’s rules more business-friendly. CSI is also operating at a high level of efficiency, ensuring that rules receive further work or scrutiny when needed, while rules that already meet CSI standards are able to move through the review quickly.
