Process for developing key prosperity issues and votes
The Ohio Prosperity Project’s list of top prosperity issues represents a consensus agenda of Ohio’s employers and business organizations, and is used to engage employees and associates in a dialogue with elected officials regarding policies affecting economic growth, the ability of employers to compete, and job security. These key prosperity issues also serve as the basis for selection of votes used in the development of voting records.
The Consensus Policy Priorities agreed upon by a number of Ohio’s major business organizations form the core of the list of prosperity issues. An Ohio Prosperity Project issues working group and the full Board of Directors continually consider additional issues for inclusion in the prosperity agenda. Any Ohio Prosperity Project participant may submit items for consideration. Only issues which receive consensus approval of the organization’s board/steering committee are included.
Votes included in lawmakers’ voting records are measured with the same criteria as the key prosperity issues. The most important question asked for each vote is, ''Will this measure strengthen or hinder Ohio’s ability to compete with other states for investment and jobs?'' The working group, members of the Board of Directors, or individual Ohio Prosperity Project participants can propose votes for inclusion in the voting record. Only those votes which receive consensus approval of the OP2 board/steering committee are included in the voting records.
