WILMINGTON — Ohio House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger (R-Clarksville) and State Sen. Bob Peterson (R-Washington Court House) were among the special guests that toured Polaris Industries to mark the occasion of House Bill 429 going into effect. The bill permits three-wheeled auto cycles to be driven without having to obtain a motorcycle endorsement on their license.

Polaris, located at 3435 Airbone Road, manufactures various adventure and powersport vehicles including ATVs, snowmobiles and auto cycles. Worldwide the Minnesota-based company employs more than 8,000 people.

“Today we were able to learn more about how the legislature can break down barriers for Ohio businesses and I’m glad to have had the opportunity to witness their work in action,” Rosenberger said Monday. “I want to thank Polaris for welcoming us here today to see why they continue to be a thriving business and job creator in southwestern Ohio.”

“Helping auto cycles get to market faster will help Polaris Industries expand their operation in Ohio and create more jobs,” said Antani (R-Miamisburg). “Ohio is now on the cutting edge of these new-age vehicles and the automotive industry.”
