06.27.16 - Rep. Ramos Comments On U.S. Supreme Court Ruling Affirming Women's Right To Comprehensive Healthcare

 

State Rep. Dan Ramos (D-Lorain) today released the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court decision in the case of Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, in which the court found that restrictions on access to comprehensive healthcare in Texas placed an undue burden on women, violating the American Constitution:  

“I was pleased to hear of the outcome in Whole Woman’s Health v Hellerstedt and couldn’t agree more that the Texas law, as well as similar statues passed by Republican lawmakers in Ohio, fly in the face of our duty as legislators to uphold the U.S. Constitution.  

 
 

06.24.16 - Rep. Ramos Comments On United Kingdom's Decision To Leave The EU

 

State Rep. Dan Ramos (D-Lorain) today issued the following statement expressing his concern regarding the United Kingdom’s decision to withdraw from the European Union and its potentially harmful global political impact:

“I rarely speak about international issues in my official capacity, as I am a state official. However, in this case, I believe that Britain’s decision to leave the European Union will have far-reaching ripple effects around the world, including here in Ohio. The entire United Kingdom is dependent upon trade and free movement within the EU – no more than in Northern Ireland, which is inextricably tied to the Republic of Ireland economically, culturally and historically. Movement across the border has benefited the six counties of Northern Ireland, as well as the Republic of Ireland, economically and – most importantly – by reducing violence. 

 
 

05.25.16 - Rep. Ramos: Ohio Pushes Nation Past Halfway Point For Access To Legal Medical Marijuana

 

State Rep. Dan Ramos (D-Lorain) today announced the final passage of House Bill (HB) 523, legislation to legalize the use of certain forms of medical marijuana in Ohio to treat a variety of illnesses and injuries, including cancer, chronic pain, epilepsy, traumatic brain injury, Parkinson’s disease, post-traumatic stress disorder, spinal cord injury, HIV and AIDS. Ohio will become the 26th state in the nation to grant access to legal medical marijuana once the bill is signed into law.    

“After an historic vote, Ohio citizens suffering from severe pain or chronic illness will now be able to seek relief through the use of this non-addictive medicine,” said Ramos, who served as ranking minority member of the Select Committee on Medical Marijuana, was a founding member of the Medical Marijuana Task Force, and was instrumental in penning HB 523. “From children with seizure disorders to returning war heroes with PTSD, this bill will help to manage symptoms that get in the way of everyday life. I am honored to have had the opportunity to take part in drafting monumental legislation that will dramatically change so many people’s lives for the better.
