You can see the executive order for all its glory at the Governor’s website.
It goes on for five pages, but it mostly does only two things:
1) Continues some of Governor Strickland’s executive order called Common Sense Initiative that the Kasich campaign called inadequate.
2) Appoint Mary Taylor to a newly created office to figure out what a small business is and ways for the Administration to claim that Strickland’s initiative had failed to adequately remove regulations that unfairly hindered small businesses in Ohio.
Basically Kasich is saying, “we going to continue to do what the last […]Full Story... →

John Kasich apparently doesn’t even know that most of Ohio’s regulations don’t even deal with businesses at all.
As part of Kasich’s endorsement of Governor Strickland’s regulatory reform, Kasich tried to stage a distracting visual for his press event (HT: Ohio Capital Blog):
