When Mike DeWine became governor, he immediately made good on his promise about workforce and economic development by naming Lt. Gov. Jon Husted to lead Innovate Ohio.
Innovate Ohio looks at state government through the eyes of consumers and business. It hopes to create efficiencies, reduce costs and improve interactions Ohioans have with state services.
Husted also took the reins of Ohio’s Common Sense Initiative to eliminate regulations hampering business growth and job creation. The initiative also has the mission of creating a leaner, more efficient state government.
As secretary of state, Husted reduced the time to start a business.
