In November 2019, The ATPC continued its state outreach expansion efforts with a visit to Columbus, Ohio. FIS/Worldpay (led by Andrew Ciafardini and Jonathan Genovese) drove trip planning with support from their lobbying firm of BakerHostetler (Lori A. Herf). This team and H. West Richards, Jay Morgan, and Patrick Greer met with more than 20 Ohio state legislators, including both House and Senate leadership. The meetings covered a wide range of topics important to the State of Ohio including cybersecurity, fraud, financial inclusion, and casino gaming. Ohio is the home to a number of payment processors and key issuing banks.
