COLUMBUS – The Ohio House of Representative today passed House Bill 200, sponsored by State Representative Christina Hagan (R-Alliance), which expands the list of facilities that are able to obtain non-patient specific epinephrine for the purpose of treating anaphylactic shock. Such places included in the legislation are restaurants, colleges and universities, amusement parks, sports facilities, child care settings and other locations.
State Representative Christina Hagan (R-Alliance) applauds the passage of House Bill 92 in the Ohio House today. This bill, sponsored by Representative Hagan, seeks to protect the well-being of students in Ohio from sexual misconduct by school employees.
Representative Christina Hagan (R-Alliance) announced today that Ohio’s first-ever, one-time Sales Tax Holiday will begin on Friday, August 7th at 12:01 a.m. and will end on Sunday, August 9th at 11:59 p.m. This initiative was created through Senate Bill 243, signed into law in December of 2014.
As the economic climate in Ohio continues to evolve, a recent trend that I am pleased to see is a renewed awareness of the value and need of the skilled trades in this state. With student debt rising and many young people finding themselves stuck in financial turmoil after earning their degrees, it makes sense for us as state legislators to provide support to an alternate route through skilled trade programs, which can provide Ohioans with in-demand, high paying jobs with minimal debt. The student debt epidemic is becoming a major issue, partially due to a lack of financial literacy, and I am working on two pieces of legislation to help curb this in the future.
