House Republicans Anticipate Vote on House Bill 318

Columbus – In preparation of a vote on House Bill 318 State Representative William G. Batchelder (R-Medina) releases the following radio statement:

“I am very disappointed that today we are going to have a vote on legislation which will increase the taxes paid by Ohioans in a way that can be very damaging to job creation. This tax will come down particularly hard on small business people—those who are in retail, those who have small businesses.

At the end of the day 75 percent of the new jobs in this state are created by small business. It may be small in the sense of how much each business generates, but it’s not small in the instance of job creation. We are dependent on small business for job creation. This tax will fall most heavily on those people.

In addition, this tax is retroactive, going back to the first of the year that we’re in now. The first of 2009 nobody knew they had to pay this tax, nobody even had any anticipation that this tax would be put into effect.

Because that’s unfair, and because this tax is a job killer House Republicans will oppose it. And we want the people of Ohio to understand what a dangerous impact it can have on our economy and job creation for our children.”Columbus – In preparation of a vote on House Bill 318 State Representative William G.
