(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.”
As we celebrate this Independence Day, let us be reminded of the extraordinary boldness that propelled our founders to victory and inspires us to serve the country that we love. Let us be bold, for it is our inheritance and responsibility.
"The dedicated professionals who devote their lives to educating our students should be able to do their jobs without the fear of violence," said LaRose. "Ohio's leaders deserve our support and protection."
"Unfortunately, Rett Syndrome has received little funding for research compared to diseases like Cystic Fibrosis and ALS, which occur with the same frequency. My hope is that increased awareness will be accompanied by a more robust investment in research for a cure."
"Even a few seconds can make the difference between life or death for a person an emergency vehicle is trying to reach," added Hughes. "I feel the responsibility to do everything in my power to make the public aware of the law and motivated to help our emergency vehicles pass as quickly as possible."
