Legislative Platform

Prior to the start of each General Assembly, CCAO members develop, through the committee and Board of Directors approval process, a legislative platform to guide the Association’s advocacy efforts for the next two years. Ultimately, the platform is voted on by the CCAO general membership at the annual winter conference in December.

2019-2020 Legislative Platform:

Stronger Partnership, Stronger Counties, Stronger Ohio Top Priorities for 2017-2018:

  • 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
