The director of each department shall, with the approval of the governor, maintain
a central office at a location in the state that the director finds necessary for
the efficient performance of the department. The central office of a department shall not be relocated from Columbus to another
location in this state until the director of the department has conducted a cost-benefit
analysis of the relocation and provided a copy of the analysis to the governor, the
speaker of the house of representatives, and the president of the senate and the relocation
has been approved by an act of the general assembly.
The director of each department may, with the approval of the governor, establish
and maintain, at places other than the location of the central office, branch offices
for the conduct of any one or more functions of the department.
No relocation of departments or employees of departments from one location in this
state to another shall be carried out that will result in an increase in the total
number of employees of all departments or an increase in the total number of employees
in any department that is relocated. This section does not prevent a department from increasing the number of its employees
to meet the demands of its workload or for any other reason arising from circumstances
unrelated to the department's relocation.
