(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.”
Senator Bob Peterson released the following statement on the governor’s request to hold his annual State of the State Address at the Roberts Centre in Wilmington, Ohio on February 24, 2015:
President Keith Faber and members of the Republican Caucus today announced themes that will encompass priority legislation for the 131st General Assembly. Bills will begin to be dropped next week and will focus on clean water, college affordability, tax conformity and education deregulation, among other issues.
COLUMBUS–Senate President Keith Faber (R–Celina) will hold a press conference Wednesday with members of the Senate majority leadership team to announce Senate priorities for the 131st General Assembly.
Like most honest couples, my wife and I would readily admit that we don’t agree on everything. But we agree on enough, and think enough of each other, that we are going to spend the rest of our lives together.
