Ohio Governor Ted Strickland issued an executive order on Aug 2010, prohibiting "the expenditure of public funds for services provided offshore."
"Outsourcing jobs does not reflect Ohio values," Strickland said. "Ohioans have been among the hardest hit by more than a decade of unfair trade agreements and the trickle-down economic policies that promoted offshoring jobs at the expense of Ohioans who work for a living. We must do everything within our power to prevent outsourcing jobs because it undermines our economic development objectives, slows our recovery and deprives Ohioans and other Americans of employment opportunities."
As of now Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) is the only Indian company operating in Ohio.
