The Ohio House of Representatives today passed House Bill 85, also known as “Erin’s Law,” which provides a pathway for schools to educate students in grades K-12 about the dangers of sexual abuse and about sexual violence prevention in an age-appropriate manner. The bill was sponsored by State Representatives Christina Hagan (R-Alliance) and Dan Ramos (D-Lorain).
By a unanimous vote of 90-0, the Ohio House of Representatives today passed House Bill 130, also known as DataOhio, legislation sponsored by State Representatives Mike Duffey (R-Worthington) and Christina Hagan (R-Alliance). A nearly identical bill passed the Ohio House last session by a unanimous vote of 92-0, but did not have time to pass the Ohio Senate during ‘lame duck’ session.
For over fifty years, the Ohio General Assembly has sponsored a legislative fellowship program through the Ohio Legislative Service Commission (LSC). The program is a thirteen-month paid fellowship that places twenty to twenty-four college graduates in various positions throughout the state legislature. Many are placed within the Ohio House and Senate, some work for LSC itself, and others are placed with Ohio Government Telecommunications.
