04.13.17 - Clyde Statement Calling For House Hearing On TRUMP Act

 

State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) issued the following statement today urging the Ohio House to call up House Bill 93, the Tax Returns Uniformly Made Public (TRUMP) Act, for its initial hearings:

“With Tax Day approaching, I can think of no better time to debate the TRUMP Act. Millions of Americans file their taxes this week each year, and an overwhelming majority want to know if their president has been doing the same. 

 
 

04.06.17 - Reps. Clyde, Howse Announce Ohio Equal Pay Act

 

State Reps. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) and Stephanie Howse (D-Cleveland) today announced the introduction of the Ohio Equal Pay Act, a bill that would help close the longstanding gender pay gap between men and women in the Buckeye State.

“Too often, women with the same jobs as men and with the same education as men are paid less than men, see fewer opportunities for career advancement and are more likely to struggle to meet the basic needs of their families,” said Rep. Clyde. “The Ohio Equal Pay Act works to address the systemic undervaluing of women in the workplace and aims to ensure women are treated as what they are— equal.”

 
 

03.31.17 - Clyde To Speak At Duke University School Of Law

 

State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent, Ohio) will join elected officials and noted policy experts today for a leadership roundtable discussion at the Duke University School of Law. The discussion is part of the American Constitution Society’s (ACS) Student Convention, an annual event that brings law students, lawmakers and legal experts together to discuss critical constitutional and public policy issues.

“It’s truly an honor to speak at Duke University at this important national gathering,” said Rep. Clyde. “ACS serves as an invaluable resource for many across the country as a leading repository for progressive thought and public policy. This is a unique opportunity to share my experiences in public service and to meet the next generation of lawyers, legislators and policy makers who will make a positive difference as leaders in their communities.” 

 
 

03.15.17 - Clyde Statement On HB 41, Targeted Attack On Ohio's Early Voters

 

State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) issued the following statement today after the first hearing on House Bill (HB) 41, a bill that targets Ohio’s in-person early voters with a more difficult ID requirement while leaving mail voters’ ID requirement unchanged.

“When a bill like this shows up on the committee schedule, it can look harmless. But if you scratch the surface, you see exactly who it goes after – minority voters, women voters, and Democratic voters who use in-person early voting more than other groups. While purportedly about reducing paperwork, HB 41 is really an attack on an easy voting method that many Ohioans juggling work and family like to use. I’ve served these voters and know there is no need to change the ID requirement on them.
