05.17.17 - Ohio State Rep. Alicia Reece Votes No On Workers' Compensation Bill

 

State Rep. Alicia Reece (D-Cincinnati) today voted “no” on the Republican-led charge to restrict workers’ access to healthcare and benefits through the state’s Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) budget bill, House Bill 27. The bill passed the House Insurance Committee and the House Finance Committee on a party-line vote Tuesday.

In committee earlier this week, Rep. Reece questioned why police officers were not included in new protections that provide benefits to some first responders if they contract cancer due to their work. 

 
 

05.05.17 - Reece Issues Statement On US House Passing Trumpcare

 

Ohio House Rep. Alicia Reece (D-Cincinnati) released the following statement in response to the Republican passage of Trumpcare in the U.S. House of Representatives by a razor thin margin yesterday: 

“The House Republicans’ push to roll back the Affordable Care Act is a dangerous step toward cutting off millions of Americans – including one-million Ohioans – from lifesaving healthcare. I am especially outraged by the irresponsible actions of Congressional Representatives from southwest Ohio, who voted for a bill that jeopardizes their constituents’ health and well-being. In the wealthiest country in the world, people should not have to go bankrupt or mortgage their future to access the care they need. Trumpcare threatens the health, safety and economic stability of millions of Americans young and old, especially people with pre-existing conditions. I hope yesterday’s vote will motivate Americans to come together and send a strong message to the Senate to do the right thing and put a stop to these unhealthy and unsafe restrictions.”

05.02.17 - Reece: Ohio House Pushes Unfinished, Unbalanced State Budget Off On Senate

 

Before new state economic indicators come out Thursday, the Ohio House today passed a version of the state’s two-year budget, House Bill (HB) 49, that remains hundreds of millions of dollars out of balance, if not more. The vote comes a little more than two weeks after Gov. Kasich and GOP legislative leaders announced they would need to cut close to $1 billion from the bill to maintain a stable, balanced budget. Still, the final version of House Bill 49 approved largely along party lines today fell over $400 million short of being a balanced budget bill by that standard. 

Democratic members argued that passing an unbalanced budget not only violated their constitutional oath, but was fiscally irresponsible and would jeopardize Ohio’s already weak economy.

“Ohio is now dealing with the hard reality that too many of my constituents deal with back home – living paycheck to paycheck,” said State Rep. Alicia Reece (D-Cincinnati). “There is no guarantee that the next paycheck will be as high as the last one, and recent revenue numbers prove that to be true in Ohio. We needed to cut $800 million but Republican leaders only conserved a portion of that, leaving a gapping money hole for our counterparts in the Senate to deal with. This is an “if” budget— “if” the projections hold.”
