CEAO's 2019 Legislative Program as adopted by the Legislative Committee, are of critical importance to counties in the state of Ohio. The Legislative Committee provides recommendations to our County Engineers on current issues and creates a biennial outline of legislative priorities that serve as a framework of our policy positions.
Although Ohio is ranked 35th in the nation by geographic size, it has the fourth largest interstate network. The state is within a 600-mile drive of half of the nation's population and is considered a crossroads for America's manufacturing and agricultural industries.
Every trip begins and ends on a local road. CEAO is here to collaborate with all to keep Ohio's transportation network open for business.
