Ohio (US) Senator looking to help businesses impacted by lockout

Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown will be contacting the Small Business Administration to get help for businesses impacted by lockout. (Guessing his emphasis will be on Columbus businesses, but could spread to all US metro areas impacted.)

It's unclear what form that help would take, but area business told The Dispatch last week that they've eliminated some positions and scaled back the working hours of others because the the loss of hockey home games has significantly curtailed crowds on weeknights.
Brown also wants to work with local leaders -- the Blue Jackets, the Greater Columbus Sports Commission, etc. -- to lobby the NHL for the 2015 NHL All-Star Game. (There likely won't be a 2014 All-Star Game because of the Olympics in Socchi, Russia.)
