(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.”
In addition to serving as a Senator in the Ohio General Assembly, I have owned and operated a pharmacy in my hometown of Marysville, Ohio since 1997. As health care providers, one of the most important roles of pharmacists is to promote health and prevent disease within the community. With this in mind, I want to let you know that September is National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.
September marks the beginning of a new school year, the start of football season and cooler weather, but more importantly, it’s Campus Fire Safety Month. Last month I introduced Senate Bill 359 which addresses the very real need for improved fire safety measures in off-campus and rental homes.
State Senator Keith Faber will hold open office hours at several locations throughout the district on Thursday, September 4 and Friday, September 5, 2014. Senator Faber represents the 12th Ohio Senate District which encompasses all of Allen, Champaign, Mercer and Shelby counties as well as portions of Auglaize, Darke and Logan counties. He currently serves as President of the Senate.
