New Ohio 'CSI' office meant to cut red tape


COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio Gov. John Kasich has signed into law a bill aimed at helping employers with the state’s own version of “C.S.I.”

On TV, that means “Crime Scene Investigation,” but in Ohio the initials stand for “Common Sense Intiative.” It’s a new office that will develop customer-service standards for state agencies and their employees.

Supporters say the overall goal is make it easier for businesses to navigate their way through complex state regulations.

As he signed the bill today, Republican Kasich called it “a new day” and said the state is beginning to accelerate toward the speed of business.

He’s among many governors who are vowing to cut regulations this year and hold the line on taxes to attract employers and rebuild after a brutal recession.
