Amstutz recognized as OSCPA Outstanding Legislator

Oct 04, 2012

State Rep. Ron Amstutz, R-Wooster, was recognized last week with OSCPA’s Outstanding Legislator Award.

The award was presented in acknowledgement of Amstutz’s countless efforts to make Ohio a better place for businesses to locate and citizens to live. Amstutz was also acknowledged for his strong working relationship with OSCPA and his support of numerous issues important to Ohio CPAs. Amstutz has served in many leadership roles as a member of the Ohio General Assembly, including as prior chairman of the Senate Ways and Means and Economic Development Committee and as current chair of the House Finance Committee.

During his tenure in the Senate, Amstutz played a crucial role in the passage of state tax reform legislation in 2005 which was a top legislative priority for OSCPA and Ohio’s business community. He has also been an integral advocate in the successful passage of other OSCPA-backed proposals. This includes the most recent state operating budget, which closed an $8 billion shortfall without a tax increase, elimination of Ohio’s estate tax and numerous provisions to encourage efficiency and streamlining in state and local government.

Amstutz is one of many outstanding candidates endorsed by OSCPA in the upcoming election. See the complete Election Guide to identify candidates supporting Ohio CPAs and the business community.
