Strickland creates Economic Growth Cabinet

From the Gov.:

Columbus, Ohio –Governor Ted Strickland today signed an executive order that establishes the Ohio Economic Growth Cabinet, a subdivision of the governor’s cabinet that will focus on creating jobs and increasing economic growth opportunities in Ohio.

“There is no greater priority for my administration than creating jobs and getting our economy moving again,” Strickland said.  “The Ohio Economic Growth Cabinet will help us to make sure we are using all the tools of state government to grow Ohio’s economy.”
The Economic Growth Cabinet will enable the state to improve how information is collected on targeted economic development investments, ensure the state meets business regulation goals and ensure the state is rapidly responding to the needs and challenges of Ohio’s economy. The Economic Growth Cabinet will also help ensure that all state government partners work together to advance and promote Ohio’s economic growth.

This executive order is the first initiative of the Ohio Department of Development’s Strategic Plan for Economic Development to be implemented.

Lieutenant Governor Lee Fisher, who also serves as director of the Ohio Department of Development, will serve as chair of the Economic Growth Cabinet. “The daily work of Ohio’s economic development leaders must be done in the context of a larger strategic framework,” said Fisher. “With Governor Strickland’s signature, we are helping to ensure that state government and the business community are working efficiently and effectively to promote and advance Ohio’s economy.”

The first three initiatives identified for the Cabinet are:  

o        Promoting a Comprehensive Approach to Business Needs: Interagency Work Teams were created at the start of the Strickland/Fisher Administration to respond rapidly to time-sensitive opportunities for job creation and retention and to provide solutions for projects with complex needs.  Interagency Work Teams will remain a key tactic for addressing the needs of Ohio’s business customers and community.

o        Developing a Unified Economic Development Budget: The unified economic development budget will identify investments made throughout state government to support economic development initiatives.  This unified budget will increase transparency for Ohioans about the state’s spending while helping evaluate how well state investments are coordinated to achieve the best economic impact.

o        Monitoring the Progress of Economic Development in Ohio: As outlined in the Ohio Department of Development Strategic Plan, the Economic Growth Cabinet will assist the Department with achieving the measures and performance targets of the plan.  The Economic Growth Cabinet will engage its local partners in each of Ohio’s regions to develop and add to the plan’s performance measures.

Strickland will appoint the following people to the cabinet: the directors of the Departments of Administrative Services, Aging, Agriculture, Commerce, Education, Environmental Protection, Health, Insurance, Job and Family Services, Natural Resources, Office of Budget and Management, Taxation, Transportation; as well as the executive director of the Air Quality Development Authority; the chairman of the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio; the director of the Ohio Public Works Commission; the chancellor of the University System of Ohio; the executive director of the Ohio Water Development Authority; the administrator of the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation; the governor’s executive assistant for economic development and other cabinet or agency members as determined by Fisher, in consultation with the governor. 

Today’s announcement follows Strickland’s ongoing efforts to promote economic development and job creation in Ohio.  Earlier this year he signed a $1.57 billion bipartisan job stimulus plan to create jobs and lay a foundation for long-term economic growth.  And he also signed a groundbreaking energy bill that ensures stable and predictable energy prices while spurring a new renewable and advanced energy economy in Ohio.  Additionally, he protected tax reforms initiated by a previous General Assembly to make Ohio a more attractive environment for business investment. Strickland is also calling for a more aggressive jobs stimulus package at the national level.
