07.25.17 - Rep. Fedor Applauds $700M Steel Facility Project That Will Bring Over 1,000 Jobs To Toledo, Great Lakes Region

 

State Rep. Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo) today announced that the Toledo Ironville Terminal will soon be home to a $700 million ironworks facility that will produce Hot Briquetted Iron (HBI) for the steel industry in the Great Lakes region. The new facility, which is expected to create 130 permanent jobs and 1,200 construction jobs, will require two million hours of manual labor to complete.

“The selection of Toledo Ironville Terminal for this exciting project is a testimony to the strength of the workforce here in Toledo,” said Fedor. “The significant investment being made will create over a thousand good-paying jobs in northwest Ohio, spurring economic growth and helping to rebuild Ohio’s steel industry. I join the hard-working men and women of Toledo in looking forward to helping produce and build quality infrastructure for the entire nation.”

 
 

07.06.17 - Fedor: GOP Bill To Weaken Concealed Carry Protections Puts Public Safety In The Crosshairs

 

In a political effort to hamstring Ohio House Democratic lawmakers in a pro-gun, anti-gun debate today on the House floor, Republicans brought forward House Bill (HB) 233 for a vote, legislation that allows concealed carry permit holders to knowingly bring guns or deadly weapons into daycares, schools, airports, bars and other restricted spaces, so long as the permit holder leaves when asked to do so. Individuals who refuse to leave or return to the same business while carrying a prohibited weapon within 30 days will be subject to a fourth degree misdemeanor.

“Americans value and enshrine in our constitution the right to manage weapons under our roof. This concept is enshrined in the 2nd Amendment, against the forced quartering of soldiers. For a young child in a daycare center, that center is essentially their home, and the caregivers are charged with protecting the children as if they were their own,” said Rep. Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo). “Under this bill, even private homes can be subject to knowing, purposeful trespass with a firearm. Whether it is a daycare, a restaurant or a shelter, the owners and managers have the right to set rules for how they will protect those in their care or under their roof.”

 
 

07.06.17 - Fedor: Medicaid Restrictions, Taxes Among Eleven Potential Law Changes From House GOP Veto Showdown With Governor

 

Today, the Republican-controlled Ohio House of Representatives overrode eleven items Governor John Kasich vetoed in the recently passed state budget, House Bill (HB) 49. Under the House’s overrides, Medicaid expansion will have to be reauthorized through the state Controlling Board and new taxes on working people could be put in place as a condition of healthcare coverage – if the Senate takes up the House overrides.

“Medicaid expansion served an important role in establishing a lifeline of healthcare, particularly for young adults who are working, seeking work or recovering from conditions that prevent them from working,” said Rep. Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo). “Access to healthcare is not only a moral issue, but an economic imperative for our community. Toledo is internationally known for the products of its manufacturing labor, but this cannot be achieved without a healthy workforce. Many promises have been made by state and local leaders about healthcare, but the gap between those promises and access to quality healthcare will expand with the provisions we put in place today.”

 
 

06.29.17 - Fedor: State's Fake Budget Built On Broken Economic Outlook, Six Years Of Few Results And Empty Job Promises

 

Amid a more than $1 billion financial shortfall, Ohio’s legislative Republicans pushed state budget negotiations closer to the brink Tuesday and Wednesday with eleventh hour horse-trading over a Medicaid lockout and complex money maneuvers, leaving Gov. John Kasich less than 48 hours to review the state budget, House Bill 49, before the start of the new fiscal year.

“This bill will result in worse health outcomes and more deaths if the Governor does not use his executive authority to line-item veto the Medicaid freeze,” said Rep. Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo). “Ohio now ranks 40th among all states in overall health according to America’s Health Rankings, down from 26th in 2006. The budget shortfall will be detrimental for those that rely on Medicaid for essential health services. Ohioans need a real plan for our future with effective solutions based on facts, not ideology.”
