Copper Leaf Interior Design Studio President Pam Holschuh, was selected to testify before the Ohio legislature as it debated this year’s state budget, known as House Bill 49. One of the newly proposed line items on the budget was an additional tax on a variety of services, including interior design. Pam Holschuh, who serves as a Director at Large for the Ohio South Kentucky chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), and three additional colleagues presented their testimonies individually, in front of the Ways and Means committee. These interior design professionals were asked by the ASID to outline their concerns of the detrimental effects that these additional taxes would have on the business climate of this industry in Ohio. A legal team was provided by the national association of the American Society of Interior Designers, to assist in support of these presentations. After testimony and deliberations, the House Bill has passed without these additional taxes in place.
