Santucci sponsors bill to make certain baby products tax exempt

State Rep. Nick Santucci, R-Howland, is co-sponsoring legislation to exempt certain baby products from state sales tax.

The exemption would be for children’s diapers, car seats, cribs, strollers, baby carriers and baby monitors.

“Eliminating the sales tax on these necessities will help ease the financial burden on Ohio families raising children,” said Santucci.

Santucci is co-sponsoring the bill with state Rep. Melanie Miller, R-Ashland.

This was first proposed by Gov. Mike DeWine, a Republican, in his State of the State address in January.

“This pro-family bill will help young families in Ohio and reduce costs for parents hammered by inflation over the past two years,” Santucci said.
