Representatives Schuring And Greenspan Introduce Legislation Aimed At Protecting Taxpayer Dollars
 
COLUMBUS-State Representatives Kirk Schuring (R-Canton) and Dave Greenspan (R-Westlake) today introduced House Bill 312, which would require local governments to establish credit card policies to protect tax dollars. The bill would:

• Require all government entities to enact a credit card policy detailing allowable uses, number of cards, who can use them, credit limits, and reissue periods
• Require for some governmental entities that accounts and policies be reviewed regularly by an appointed compliance officer other than the treasurer of the government entity
• Ban the use of debit cards, except for certain law-enforcement purposes
• Authorize the Auditor of State to create rules for the disclosure and audit of credit card rewards accrued by local governments

“This legislation encourages and promotes additional transparency and oversight for spending Ohioans’ tax dollars, while affirming a responsive and responsible form of governing,” said Rep. Greenspan.

“I’m honored to be a part of Auditor Yost’s efforts to put safeguards around the use of credit cards by local governments, and I want to commend him for the time he has taken to develop the framework for this legislation,” said Rep. Schuring. “Without the checks and balances that are incorporated in this bill, there is potential exposure for local governments to negligently use or abuse credit cards in a way that will ultimately cost taxpayer dollars.”

It was a pleasure speaking with Jason Aubrey from NBC 4 in Columbus regarding the need to protect taxpayer dollars in our local communities.

Thank you to Auditor Yost for inviting me to speak about the importance of HB312 for our local communities. I am honored to be a joint sponsor of this important legislation along with Representative Schuring.

Great spending time today at River Days. Always an amazing event for the community.

Representative Greenspan Votes To Help Counties And Transit Authorities By Overriding Executive Veto 

 

COLUMBUS - State Representative Dave Greenspan (R-Westlake) announced that the Ohio House has voted to override the Governor's veto of a provision in the state biennial budget bill related to the managed care organizations (MCOs) sales tax replacement plan.
Under the budget bill, House Bill 49, Medicaid managed care organizations would be subject to a franchise fee, replacing a state and local sales tax on purchases made by Medicaid MCOs. In 2014, the state of Ohio was advised by the federal government that applying this sales tax was no longer permissible under federal law and that Ohio must comply by the end of June 2017.

This franchise fee will be a replacement for the revenue local governments previously collected through the MCO sales tax. The House overrode the Governor's veto of this provision, including a measure that requires the Director of the Ohio Department of Medicaid to seek federal approval to raise the franchise fee, which has the potential to raise up to an additional $207 million each fiscal year.

"This is an important message to send to our local partners, including Cuyahoga County and RTA, that we support their efforts to serve the residents and businesses of northeast Ohio," said Rep. Greenspan.

The additional funds raised will be distributed to each county and transit authority that experiences reduced sales tax revenues due to the cessation of the sales tax on Medicaid MCOs, providing more aid to counties in their fight against the opioid epidemic.
 

Honored to spend time this evening with the Greater Cleveland Young Marines

Representative Greenspan Announces Passage Of "Judy's Law"

Judy's Law inspired by woman set on fire by estranged boyfriend

Columbus - State Representative Dave Greenspan (R-Westlake) today announced that the Ohio House has passed House Bill 63, also known as “Judy’s Law,” which strengthens the penalties for perpetrators of felonious assault if an accelerant is used in committing the offense.

State Representative Jim Hughes (R-Upper Arlington) introduced the legislation after learning about a Gahanna mother, Judy Malinowski, who was doused in gasoline and set on fire in August 2015 by her estranged boyfriend. Over 600 days later, Malinowski has had more than 50 surgeries and is still fighting for her life. Due to current law, the judge was only able to impose an 11-year sentence on her abuser.

House Bill 63 would allow judges to add an additional prison term of six years for felonious assault if the offender used an accelerant in committing the offense and the abuse resulted in a permanent disfigurement or permanent substantial incapacity.

Despite her horrific condition, Malinowski has continued to speak out about domestic violence and has made every effort to warn other victims. She also bravely recorded video testimony encouraging legislators to pass House Bill 63.

NBC4 this week announced that Malinowski has been moved to a palliative care center and is no longer receiving medical care, but is resting comfortably. Malinowski’s family remains optimistic.

Judy’s Law passed unanimously with bipartisan support and now goes to the Ohio Senate for further consideration.

Ohio House Stiffens Penalties For Assault Or Murder Of First Responders, Military Members

COLUMBUS - State Representative Dave Greenspan (R-Westlake) today announced that the Ohio House of Representatives has passed legislation that would increase penalties against an offender who feloniously assaults or murders a first responder or member of the military with targeted intent.

House Bill 38, sponsored by Rep. Greenspan, expands the offense of aggravated murder to include purposely causing the death of a first responder or military member when the offender had specific intent to commit the crime against one of these individuals. Under the legislation, a first responder is defined as a firefighter or emergency medical service provider. Additionally, the definition of a military member includes a member of the United States Armed Forces, reserves, the Ohio National Guard, or a participant in ROTC.

The bill also increases the penalty for a targeted felonious assault against a first responder or military member from a second degree felony to a first degree felony, requiring a mandatory prison term of three to eleven years if the victim suffered serious physical harm.

“There have been repeated incidences of disturbing attacks on those who have dedicated their lives to protect and serve our communities and our nation,” said Representative Greenspan. “This bill sends a strong message of support to those brave men and women who see us at our worst or in our greatest times of need and to those who protect and defend our freedoms and liberties.”

Also known as the “Public Safety and Military Protection Act,” House Bill 38 comes in response to a recent upsurge in specifically directed attacks on police officers and other officials, including the murders of a Danville police officer and a Kirkersville Police Chief in Ohio. Passed during National Police Week, the bill retains current law with regard to enhanced protections related to law enforcement and peace officers, but expands those definitions to include those who previously served in such a capacity.

House Bill 38, a part of the Buckeye Pathway policy platform, now awaits further consideration in the Ohio Senate.

Representative Dave Greenspan Votes Yes for House Budget 
Budget bill prioritizes combating the drug epidemic, schools

COLUMBUS-The Ohio House of Representatives this week passed House Bill 49, the state operating budget. The bill addresses some of Ohio's most pressing issues, including more than $170 million in funding towards combating Ohio's opioid epidemic and providing additional resources to schools. Representative Dave Greenspan (R-Westlake) voted in support of the legislation.
 
In response to lower than expected revenue estimates, the House restrained spending and facilitated sound fiscal policies by staying under the rate of inflation for the first time in several years and spending about $2.5 billion less than the executive proposal over the biennium.
 
To underscore the importance of combating the state's deadly opioid epidemic, the House appropriated funds totaling $170.6 million in new money to invest in prevention, treatment, mental health care, and workforce programs through the HOPES (Heroin, Opioids, Prevention, Education and Safety) Agenda. Resources will be directed as follows:
 
* $80 million toward treatment (transitional housing, nursing beds pilot program, ADAMHS boards, expanding treatment/detox programs, drug courts)
* $50 million toward supporting children (Child Protective Services and kinship care)
* $19.4 million toward mental health (stabilization centers, residential state supplement, BCI processing lab reports, telemedicine coverage and mental health court pilot program)
* $12.2 million toward prevention (community coalition funding, investing in innovation & technology, accessible educational resources and Start Talking!)
* $9 million toward workforce (Short-term certificates and SNAP workforce & training funding)
 
Enhancing opportunities for all Ohioans is a central component of the state operating budget through additional school funding, ensuring that students have the resources to learn and grow. House Bill 49 increases funding compared to the executive budget proposal by more than $90 million over the biennium.
 
Through a series of provisions, the budget strengthens accountability in the state's Medicaid program by placing guardrails on future Medicaid Group VIII spending through the Controlling Board. The bill also returns Medicaid oversight to the General Assembly by directing the Department of Medicaid to seek a federal waiver to require a Group VIII Medicaid recipient to be one of the following: over 55, medically fragile, employed, in an education or workforce training program, or in a recovery program.
 
Additional provisions in the budget include:
 
* Simplifying the tax code by reducing the number of tax brackets and eliminating tax changes included in the executive budget proposal
* Protecting vulnerable Ohio children by providing $400,000 to the Providence House for crisis care
* Investing in Ohio's history by providing $500,000 to the Western Reserve Historical Society for new facility construction
* Restoring the MARCS radio credit for local governments by having $4,000,000 restored for our local municipalities
* Addressing Ohio's rising prison population by expanding options for local communities to divert some low-level offenders from the crowded state prison system
* Ensuring children receive the care and attention they deserve by restoring the Bureau for Children with Medical Handicaps (BCMH) program and funding it at $3 million per year
* Directing additional resources to the local level by increasing funding for Indigent Defense
* Providing a head start for Ohio's youth by making sure 3 year olds have access to early childhood education centers
 
The House's budget bill, sponsored by House Finance Chairman Ryan Smith (R-Bidwell), will now go to the Ohio Senate for further consideration.
 
 

Thank you to Representative and Chair Andrew Brenner for speaking today at the latest in my series of District Roundtables. This edition was focused on issues facing education. Thank you again and for those who attended.

Thank you to everyone who came out this morning for our second Donuts with Dave. Once again we had an amazing group of constituents who attended. I truly appreciated all of the great questions and our engaging discussions.

I am truly looking forward to our next Donuts with Dave on June 17th, and please contact me at anytime if you have any questions or if I can ever be assistance to you.

Small businesses are a crucial cornerstone of Ohio's economy. In order to fuel this business sector, the Ohio House has prioritized business-friendly policies, making our state more attractive to own and operate a company. Just recently, Secretary of State Jon Husted announced that this past March was the best month for new business filings in Ohio's history, with over 33,000 entities taking the first steps toward starting their own company.

In the 131st General Assembly, the state legislature reduced the filing fees to do business by 21 percent. Since that change took effect, Ohio businesses have saved over $3.6 million. On top of that, through the last budget, small businesses saw income tax deductions and a low, flat tax of 3 percent on establishments above the $250,000 income level. This keeps more money in the hands of our small business owners and allows them to reinvest in their companies. One such company in the 16th Ohio House District that has surely benefited from these changes is Logan Clutch Corporation.

 

Based in Westlake, Ohio, Logan Clutch is a small business that has global impact. Founded in 1975, Logan Clutch is a family-owned original equipment manufacturer, focusing primarily on industrial clutches and brakes. They employ just under 50 full-time and part-time employees, but have sales agents and distributors across the United States, China, Singapore and throughout Europe. One of the most important benefits that small businesses add to the economy is the job stability and creation they give to everyday Ohioans.

 

Logan Clutch is first and foremost a manufacturer, but the company has an impact on a number of industries: marine, industrial, irrigation, oil and gas, and mobile equipment. For example, the company produced the clutches utilized on firefighting boats in San Francisco, modernizing the technology behind the boats' ability to pump thousands of gallons of water efficiently in an earthquake situation. They also supply clutches that are used in most airport snow blowers and airport air rescue firefighting trucks across the country, including Chicago O'Hare, Buffalo, and Cleveland's own Hopkins. Ohio's national standing and competitiveness are aided by companies like Logan Clutch, who are at the forefront of manufacturing technology and are essential to bringing Ohio's manufacturing industry back to life.


Ohio's growth and development depends on our small businesses-the entities that are continuously on the brink of revolutionary technology. In the case of Logan Clutch Corporation, its experience in the marine industry is a boon to the Great Lakes region. As they continue to research new ways to support and improve the health and sustainability of the lakes, their economic impact on Ohio will endure. Logan Clutch is one of countless small businesses that contribute to our state's fiscal health, but their effect on the many families they employ is something to be truly proud of.

Representative Greenspan Announces Passage Of Legislation To Protect Ohio's Vulnerable Populations

COLUMBUS-State Representative Dave Greenspan (R-Westlake) yesterday announced that the Ohio House has passed legislation to help protect Ohio's seniors and other unsuspecting populations against deceptive marketing practices. House Bill 52 makes several reforms to regulate the solicitation of real property deeds.

 

House Bill 52, sponsored by Rep. Jeff Rezabek (R-Clayton), comes in response to deed solicitation scams plaguing many Ohioans, whereby companies outside of Ohio will send official looking notifications to homeowners informing them that they need a copy of their property deed. Further, the notices will request up to $90 for the deed, preying on individuals who are unaware that they can receive a copy of their deed from the county recorder's office for a minimal fee.

 

"I support this common-sense bill for its added protections to consumers, but particularly our seniors," said Greenspan. "As elected trustees, it is important for us to provide citizens with the tools to combat financial fraud and abuse."

 

The provisions under the legislation require that specific disclosures be made to consumers when they are solicited a fee for real property deeds, including the cost to obtain the deed from the county recorder, the contact information for the county recorder, and the name and address of the person soliciting the fee. Other reforms prohibit the charging of a fee more than four times the cost to obtain a copy of a deed from the county recorder. A violation of these requirements falls under the Ohio Consumer Sales Practices Act and may result in a fine.

 

House Bill 52 is a part of the Buckeye Pathway, the policy platform of the Ohio House Republican Caucus, as it seeks to protect our vulnerable populations and strengthen families and communities. The bill now awaits consideration in the Ohio Senate.

 

 
COLUMBUS- State Representative Dave Greenspan (R-Westlake) today released a calendar of events in the 16th Ohio House District.

Representative Greenspan Applauds Passage of Legislation Increasing Access to Summer Meal Programs in Local Schools
 
COLUMBUS-State Representative Dave Greenspan (R-Westlake) yesterday applauded the Ohio House's passage of legislation that permits organizations to operate summer food programs Ohio's schools. House Bill 80 was joint sponsored by Representatives Sarah LaTourette (R-Chesterland) and Kent Smith (D-Euclid), both of whom represent important areas in Northeast Ohio.
 
House Bill 80 allows school districts that opt out of providing summer food services to allow a summer food service program sponsor to utilize its facilities, with the approval of their local district board. The bill will increase access to meals for students who depend on free breakfast or lunch during the school year. Unfortunately, many school districts in this state are forced to opt out of this service due to local financial restraints.
 
Under this bill, school districts would be able to charge a reasonable fee for the use of the school's facilities and related services. The food service program providers would be required to have insurance and be pre-approved.
 
"One out of four children in Ohio experience food insecurity and if this bill helps provide relief to those children, then this further demonstrates responsive and responsible government," said Representative Greenspan.

Rep. Dave Greenspan (R-Westlake) has arrived at the Ohio Statehouse after successive turns in more than a half dozen communities in the U.S., bringing with him a keen appreciation for local differences and concerns.

Greenspan, who until recently served on the Cuyahoga County Council and chaired its Finance and Budgeting Committee, landed in Westlake a decade ago to reunite with his college sweetheart (now wife) and quickly became involved in local government after a previous council stint in Sandy Springs, GA.

"I'm fortunate I've been in elective office eight of the last 11 years," says Greenspan, who cites his work establishing police and fire departments in Sandy Springs and a fiscally stable $3 billion budget in Cuyahoga County as some of his more satisfying achievements. He has the distinction of serving on both governments' inaugural councils, with Cuyahoga County adopting a new charter in 2009 and Sandy Springs incorporating as a major municipality in 2005. Call that instant credibility.

"It was one of the largest communities ever to incorporate in the U.S.," Greenspan says of Sandy Springs, which exceeded a population of 100,000 in 2014.

He had spent his early days in New Jersey, completed junior high in south Florida, graduated from high school in Savanna, GA, completed a bachelor's degree in business and accounting at Troy University in Alabama, and began work at an accounting firm in Miami. Over the next 18 years, Greenspan rose to the position of senior production accountant with Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. in Atlanta; project manager with Atlanta Olympic Broadcasting 1996; chief operating officer with PGA Tour Radio Network (also in Atlanta); chief financial officer with software company MyTurn, Inc. in Jacksonville Beach, FL; CFO and executive vice president with online auction site ExchangeBLVD, Inc. (back in Atlanta); and ultimately to chief executive officer of his own consulting firm in Westlake, OH, Green Elk Consulting.

It was his grandmother's work raising money for Israeli hospitals that ultimately led him to public service, he says.

"Giving of your time is really what's of value. It's not something you can re-earn," she had told him. "Once you've spent it, you've spent it."

Sandy Springs was an introduction to both state and local government, as Georgia's own Legislative Services Committee (LSC) and Joint Legislative Offices had drafted the city charter approved for local referendum by the Georgia General Assembly.

Greenspan says Cuyahoga County has increased his knowledge of large-scale budgeting, as it boasts the largest municipal budget in the state.

"It's the national model for how partisanly elected officials can operate in a non-partisan fashion," he says of the county's "outcomes-based" budgeting. "They choose to appoint chairmen based on skills rather than political affiliation."

His tenure on county council ran concurrent with the Kasich administration and resulting cuts to the Local Government Fund (LGF).

"It was somewhat of a challenging time to begin with. At the same time as the LGF cuts, you had income tax reductions and property tax reductions," he notes. "What has resulted from that is that our communities are working together more collaboratively to share services."

Greenspan says his own district is beginning to recover in both property and income tax collections, factors the General Assembly will have to consider as it enters a tight budget cycle.

"As legislators, we've got to identify what the priorities are for the state," he says. "Two priorities I think are essential are to ensure our local governments are operating effectively and efficiently and our local school systems are operating effectively and efficiently."

He notes there are still more unemployed Ohioans than available jobs, even if employers cannot always find people with the qualifications and life skills to fill them.

"If we don't get hold of this drug issue, it will undermine all the efforts we've made in the state to grow our economy. Otherwise, it doesn't make a difference if there are thousands of postings at the Ohio Means Jobs website. Businesses may take their jobs elsewhere," Greenspan says, describing an emerging trend in employment screening.

"Some employers are saying to candidates, 'Show up on time and pass a drug test, and we'll train you.'"

He says the state will have to get creative to solve the opioid problem. "There are only a finite amount of financial resources. We need to foster better collaborations with organizations that are handling the education and treatment of those individuals who are addicted."

Among other legislative priorities, Greenspan says the state must continue to pursue an income tax structure that will "put more money in constituents' pockets than government's pockets." He wants to do more research on a sales tax expansion, however.
"As a general rule, I 'm not in favor of broadening the base," he says, addressing one of Gov. John Kasich's recurring budget proposals.

In the meantime, Greenspan is at work on the Public Safety and Military Protection Act, legislation that seeks to protect first responders and soldiers by increasing penalties for those who attack them. It is likely to draw support from a diverse group of lawmakers, though he says more contentious legislation does not mean people cannot be collegial and respectful.

"I may not agree with all opinions, but I want people to feel comfortable that they can come to me. People should be treated fairly, whether it's a progressive opinion or a conservative opinion," says Greenspan.

THE NATIONAL FEDERATION OF INDEPENDENT BUSINESS/OHIO (NFIB/OHIO)
ENDORSES DAVE GREENSPAN FOR

Westlake, OH July 13, 2016 - The National Federation of Independent Business/Ohio (NFIB/Ohio), the state’s leading small business association representing 25,000 entrepreneurs, is proud to announce its endorsement of Dave Greenspan, who is seeking election to Ohio’s 16th House District seat. The district is home to 100 dues paying members of NFIB/Ohio. This endorsement today comes from the NFIB/Ohio SAFE Trust, the organization’s political action committee.

Greenspan is a small-business owner and is a member of NFIB.  As a fellow small-business owner, Greenspan’s shared perspective with Ohio’s entrepreneurs allows him to understand the issues advocated for and against by NFIB/Ohio. He is an advocate for cutting taxes and lowering the cost of doing business in Ohio. Those ideas are embraced by the membership as shown by the results of NFIB/Ohio’s surveying of small-business owners throughout the state.

“Dave Greenspan has been approved through NFIB/Ohio’s member-driven process that thoroughly reviews candidates’ records, stated positions and understanding of small-business issues before an endorsement is issued,” said Roger R. Geiger, vice president and executive director of NFIB/Ohio. “As a member of NFIB, he certainly understands the issues important to Ohio’s economic engine, small-business owners. We look forward to working with him in the future as he will join 34 additional NFIB members currently serving in the Ohio Legislature.”

“I am honored to receive the endorsement of the NFIB/Ohio for my candidacy to the Ohio House of Representatives for the 16th District.  NFIB/Ohio is an important voice for businesses and serves as a vital advocate and resource for its members.  We all know how important small businesses are to the vibrancy of our economy and NFIB/Ohio is an integral component in that equation,” said Greenspan.

“As powerful as government is, it can only do so much by itself.  Government can never take the place of parents in raising children.  Government can never take the place of families and churches and synagogues in teaching values.  Government can never take the place of people in our communities working together and looking out for each other. 

Government can, of course, provide opportunities and encouragement.  Government can help the next generation become better off.   But government cannot make the next generation better.  Government can set goals but only people can touch souls.“
