(Columbus) – Ohio Senate President Keith Faber issued the following statement today regarding proposed Right to Work legislation in the Ohio House of Representatives:

“We have an ambitious agenda focused on job creation and economic recovery, and Right to Work legislation is not on that list. After discussions with other leaders and my caucus, I don’t believe there is current support for this issue in the General Assembly. The only purpose this discussion serves right now is to generate a bunch of breathless fundraising appeals from the Ohio Democratic Party.”
