State To Let Businesses File More Paperwork Online

The Ohio Secretary of State's office is launching a new initiative to let businesses file more required state paperwork online. Secretary of State Jon Husted planned to announce more details Friday. His office says it's part of the continuing effort to cut through red tape and welcome businesses in the state. All entities doing business in Ohio are required to register with Husted's office if they operate under a title other than a person's name. Husted also has incorporated more online tools in changes he's made as the state's elections chief. Before the presidential election last November, he began allowing registered voters to update their addresses online. In March, he announced an online search tool to help Ohioans more easily check their voter registration information.
