Senate President Larry Obhof
(R-Medina), Majority Floor Leader Matt Huffman
(R-Lima) and Senator Michael Rulli
(R-Salem) joined Vice President Mike Pence and other state and local leaders in Lordstown this summer for the unveiling of Lordstown Motors’ new all-electric Endurance truck.
Between Lordstown Motors and the partnership between LG Chem and GM, recent and upcoming investments in the region total over $2.3 billion and will lead to thousands of new jobs.
"Not only does this truck highlight the ingenuity of the people of the Mahoning Valley and shines the light on the renaissance of Lordstown, it also shows that our federal, state and local leaders have been laying the groundwork for economic development and innovation through good sound policy,” said Senator Rulli.
"Today marks another step forward for the future of Lordstown, and I appreciate the hard work of everyone who made this day possible," said President Obhof. "We will continue to fight for strong economic policies and opportunities like this for the hard-working families of Northeast Ohio."
"Ohio's regulatory reform efforts have helped make our state attractive to companies like Lordstown Motors," added Senator Huffman. "It was exciting to celebrate such a milestone today with the workers and the state, local and federal leaders who have put forth the efforts to see this kind of economic development in Northeast Ohio."
