(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.”
This week, Santa Claus assisted in lighting the Ohio Statehouse Christmas tree. Also, Santa and Mrs. Claus took a few requests from visitors young and old about what they would like to find under the tree this Holiday Season. Happy Holidays!
Among a slew of bills that passed the Statehouse this week was Senate Bill 229, which would make the new system for evaluating Ohio teachers a little less rigid and burdensome for teachers and school districts.
After a year of intense debate and evaluation, the General Assembly is poised to decide if Ohio’s five-year-old energy efficiency standards should be fine-tuned to reflect the state’s changing realities.
The Ohio Chamber of Commerce – along with hundreds of job creators across the state – believes Ohio’s economy would be well-served to pass the reforms proposed in Senate Bill 58.
