Red Tape Cutter Jammed

An Ohio state agency, designed by then-Gov. John Kasich’s administration to cut through state bureaucracy, is now itself backlogged. The Common Sense Initiative was formed in 2011 to help make Ohio business-friendly. The agency’s backlog totals 1,233 business regulation rules for review, hundreds of which had not been addressed by the agency. Backlogged rules include rules on alcohol and drug testing, health-product standards, drinking-water standards and water-source protection.
