Today, Speaker Householder appointed state Rep. Reggie Stoltzfus (R-Paris Twp.) to the Ohio House 2020 Economic Recovery Task Force, a bipartisan panel tasked with studying how to help Ohio’s economy recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Stoltzfus owns and operates several local businesses, employing around 40 people, and shipping products to 20 states – he believes this will bring productive insight to the task force.
“I am honored to be appointed to the COVID-19 task force and to give my insight on the best methods of recovery from a small business point of view,” said Stoltzfus.
Altogether, Householder named 24 legislators to represent this body, with the bipartisan group being geographically diverse, representing urban, suburban and rural communities from across Ohio.
The panel will begin meeting remotely today. There will be guests at each meeting from the business, manufacturing, retail, wholesale, services and recreational sectors to discuss their experience and brainstorm ways to rebound Ohio’s job market once COVID-19 has ran its course. The panel will meet via teleconferencing and videoconferencing during this time of social distancing.
