During his speech today, President Obama expressed the urgency to support small businesses and modernize our community infrastructure to create and sustain jobs. The federally funded New Markets Tax Credit program is an excellent example of how this type of initiative can work to benefit Ohioans. Since its inception, this program has created thousands of construction and full time positions, while providing much needed community resources in distressed communities. Continuing successful programs like this enable us to accelerateOhio’s economic recovery.
