Wednesday, April 25, 2018 OGA took to the Ohio Statehouse halls as we held our annual lobby and advocacy day in our state’s capitol. We kicked off the day by welcoming Representative Louis III Blessing as our guest speaker at lunch, where the Representative spoke about some of the important issues the Ohio House of Representatives is facing, including an update on the status of the unemployment compensation reform legislation. We then headed over to the Statehouse for meetings with numerous Senators and Representative, discussing some of OGA’s priority issues including auxiliary container uniformity, alcohol policy, and minimum wage increases. We capped off our busy day with a legislative reception where staff and legislative members were able to meet OGA members and partake in some delicious offerings. We want to thank all the OGA members who participated spent their day advocated for the retail food industry.
