About Policy and Advocacy

A major purpose of CCAO is to monitor legislation and educate members of the General Assembly and the Administration on issues of importance to counties. Legislation and rules enacted in Columbus directly influence the management and financing of county government. The CCAO policy team provides technical assistance to counties, creates and updates resources on state policy and legislation pertinent to counties, and advocates on behalf of counties before the executive, legislative and judicial branches of state government.

Top Priorities for 2018

  • Replace Revenue from the elimination of the MCO sales tax
  • Address growing pressures on counties caused by the opiate epidemic
  • State/county partnership on voting equipment and indigent defense
