The number of local banks in Ohio has been cut in half since the 1990s.

In their absence, people are turning to online banking options, but unreliable internet leaves a void in many rural communities.

Legislation to cut taxes for newly-formed local banks in Ohio has passed in the House and is awaiting Senate committee action.

Today on All Sides with Ann Fisher, we take a look at how declining numbers of community banks is affecting Ohio and the Legislation to save it.

Guests:

  • Frank LaRose, Ohio Secretary of State
  • Anna Staver, Statehouse reporter, The Columbus Dispatch
  • Mike Adelman, President and CEO, Ohio Bankers League
  • Rep. Derek Merrin, Ohio 47th District (R-Monclova/Lucas County), sponsor of HB 150
