Legislation sponsored by State Senator Kevin Bacon that updates Ohio’s insurance laws to reflect recent changes in federal law was signed today by Governor John Kasich. Senate Bill 9 suspends the Open Enrollment Program, the Ohio Health Reinsurance Program, and the conversion of health insurance policies/contracts option. These programs will be rendered unnecessary beginning in 2014 due to changes in federal law.
During the Opening Ceremonies, State Senator Kevin Bacon (R–Minerva Park), was sworn in for his second term in the Ohio Senate, representing the 2nd District in the state legislature’s upper chamber. Senator Bacon won reelection to the seat in the November 4, 2014 General Election.
“I am deeply honored to be recognized as Legislator of the Year by an organization dedicated to improving the lives of individuals by recognizing their abilities rather than their disabilities,” said Bacon.
