“Bike safety is an important way we can protect children in our community and provide more of them an opportunity to ride safely,” said Peterson. “By distributing bike helmets and safety information in our community, we can teach our kids how important it is to wear a helmet when riding a bike and help them learn how to stay safe when they're enjoying our neighborhoods.”

Two years ago we enacted Ohio’s first Sales Tax Holiday – a pilot project to see how Ohio would respond to the tax-free weekend. That was a success, as Ohioans saved millions of dollars and retailers saw a significant boost in sales. We renewed that program in 2016 and Ohio families were once again able to save money while buying necessities.

"It is an honor to recognize Ohio's Dairy Producers for their contributions to the food agricultural industry in this state," said Peterson. "Ice cream is one of the best parts of summer. For this delicious treat, we owe our gratitude to the hard working men and women who rise before daybreak every day to tend to their cows in the milking parlors. Ohio's dairy farmers love the work that they do, and we love that they do it."

"Today we unveiled a balanced, responsible and significantly smaller state budget," said State Senator Bob Peterson (R-Washington Court House), who serves as President Pro Tempore—the number two leadership position in the legislature's upper chamber. "Rather than allowing government to take more from Ohio's taxpayers, we have crafted a budget that restrains spending and focuses on key priorities such as schools and combating the drug epidemic, among others."

"Saving money to care for a loved one living with a disability or to help reduce the financial burden of getting a college education can place a tremendous financial burden on families," said Peterson.
