Objectives:

End the logjam and fighting in Columbus. Find solutions without wasting resources on battles that waste time and money. Review laws and regulations and remove those that are out of date and unnecessary. No Unfunded Mandates. Reward communities and schools that are doing things right and give them the flexibility to make decisions that are best for their constituents. Excellent schools should be given more flexibly in educating students. If they are meeting all performance expectations they should be rewarded not punished. Less regulation means cost savings and fewer burdens on taxpayers. Revise Tax and regulation structured to make Ohio business friendly. Give small business the flexibility and support to grow and flourish. Review and reform education, prison, and Medicaid spending. Regulations need to be clear and money should be fairly allocated based on reasonable criteria. Anyone receiving public funds should be 100% accountable for how that money is spent. Close loopholes to prevent abuse of the system.
