Ohio Nursery & Landscape Political Action Committee

The ONLPAC is a critical tool for our industry to remain relevant to the Ohio General Assembly. ONLPAC assists in establishing relationships with legislators who support small business and agricultural, environmental, and natural resource issues. Contributions are made to candidates and elected officials with funds raised through various events and campaigns throughout the year.

What is a PAC?
A Political Action Committee (PAC) is formed by a group of individuals with similar interests who join together to financially support political candidates. The Ohio Nursery & Landscape PAC was formed to financially support political candidates who are able to beneficially influence legislative issues related to Ohio’s green industry.

How does the ONLPAC work?
Regulated by the Ohio Secretary of State, funds are used to support candidates running for the Ohio General Assembly. Contributions support candidates who show a commitment to understanding green industry businesses and the challenges they face, have a voting record and positions on issues impacting the green industry, have relevant committee assignments or leadership roles, and whose constituency is made up of Green Industry members. ONLPAC funds are disbursed regardless of party affiliation.

Do ONLA dues help fund the ONLPAC?
No. Federal and state laws prohibit corporations from making contributions to political funds. Only donations made from individuals and certain classifications of companies are allowed. ONLA membership fees do support other legislative activities, including representation by our legislative consultants at Capitol Consulting Group.

How Can I Contribute?
Donations can be made by individuals, sole proprietorship and partnerships via cash, check or credit card. Cash donations cannot exceed $99per individual per year, but personal checks or personal credit card donations can be accepted in any amount. Total donations per individual may not exceed $5,000 per calendar year. PAC donations are not tax-deductible. Checks should be made to Ohio Nursery & Landscape PAC.
