Gov.-elect John Kasich says he wants his appointments for directors of Commerce, Agriculture and Development to cut regulations that keep businesses from coming to Ohio. Kasich says he wants his cabinet to work with Lt. Gov.-elect Mary Taylor to figure out ways to make Ohio's government more attractive to business. Kasich is not talking about tinkering with the existing system.
Kasich says he wants his appointees to look at all aspects of their agencies to figure out how best to cut unnecessary regulation. He made his comments Saturday when he appointed former Republican Rep. David Goodman (R-New Albany) as commerce director and made interim Department of Youth Services Director Christine Money's position permanent.
