CINCINNATI, OH – Today, U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) delivered remarks at the Clermont County Chamber of Commerce’s annual meeting and Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Business Awards luncheon. Portman discussed his work to enact pro-growth policies, including the tax reform law which is helping the economy grow and create jobs, strengthening Career and Technical Education, and empowering Ohioans to ensure that they have a better tomorrow. He also helped present awards to the small business owners who won SBDC awards for excellence in innovation, growth, and customer service. 

“I enjoyed participating in Clermont County Chamber of Commerce’s annual meeting today, and congratulations again to all the award winners,” said Portman. “Small business owners are the backbone of our economy and it was great to talk to so many friends today.  Throughout my travels around Ohio I have seen firsthand the real, positive difference that tax reform is making for Ohio families, workers, and businesses. Businesses throughout the state are hiring more workers, making new investments, raising wages, paying bonuses, and expanding benefits for their workers all because of tax reform. I appreciated the feedback I received today.  I look forward to continuing the dialogue with employers and working to create environment where families and small businesses succeed and flourish.”
