09.27.16 - Rep. Boccieri Throws A Flag On Fantasy Sports Regulation Bill

 

State Rep. John Boccieri (D-Poland) today said that fantasy sports should not constitute a gambling activity that needs to be regulated by the government.

09.21.16 - Boccieri: Statehouse Republicans Still Blocking Ohio's Energy Independence

 

State Rep. John Boccieri (D-Poland) today responded to draft legislation released Tuesday by Republican lawmakers that fails to uphold the state’s renewable energy standards set to expire at the end of this year. The latest proposal would reinstate the energy efficiency benchmarks until 2020, but remove all compliance measures and incentives to follow the standards, effectively making the benchmarks null and void over the next four years. 

“Utility companies invested heavily in Ohio’s renewable standards and walking back any part of those initiatives amounts to a rate increase for consumers,” Boccieri said. “We have started down the road toward energy independence with renewable energy, and if Statehouse Republicans surrender the high ground we maintain in this area, I believe that retreat would weaken our national security and undercut emerging and advanced sectors of our economy.”

 
 

08.26.16 - Rep. Boccieri On Lochte: Brazil Must Honor U.S. Laws Before We Acknowledge Theirs

 

State Rep. John Boccieri (D-Poland) said today that the recent events surrounding Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte’s charge of falsely reporting a crime illustrate inconsistencies in U.S. –  Brazilian relations. Yesterday, Brazil announced it was summoning the 12-time Olympic medalist back to Rio for legal processing after Lochte lied about the details of an altercation he had with police the morning of August 14 at a local gas station. 

“Lochte's actions were juvenile,” Rep. Boccieri said. “What he did at that gas station doesn't represent the values we expect from our Olympic ambassadors. But Brazil has some nerve to summon one of our athletes when they are harboring a known fugitive who killed a decorated Air Force Pilot.”
