Consumers could save $29M a year.

New legislation in Ohio would exempt prescription eyewear from state sales tax, the Dayton Daily News reports.

Members of the state Senate and House “agreed to roll the sales tax break into an existing bill that is expected to win approval,” according to the newspaper.

Consumers would save about $29 million a year as a result of the proposed law, said Ohio Rep. Derek Merrin.

The law would apply to eyeglasses and contact lenses.
