135.102 Purpose of SaveNOW program.

The general assembly finds that the personal savings rate among Ohioans has declined in recent years, that personal savings are important to the future prosperity of Ohio, and that personal savings must be encouraged and assisted. The SaveNOW program provided for in sections 135.101 to 135.106 of the Revised Code is intended to promote increased personal savings, which will materially contribute to the economic growth of Ohio and the financial security of its residents. Accordingly, it is declared to be the public policy of the state through the SaveNOW program to create an availability of higher-rate savings accounts for the purpose of increasing personal savings and promoting financial education among the residents of Ohio.
