COLUMBUS - 

State Representative Andy Thompson (R-Marietta) has announced that the Ohio House of Representatives today passed House Bill 1, which strives to streamline Ohio’s workforce development efforts and make it easier for Ohioans to utilize the resources that are available to them.


House Bill 1 rebrands all of the state’s patchwork of workforce centers (also known as One-Stops) as “Ohio Means Jobs ___ County” to ensure consistency, reduce public confusion, and connect these centers directly to OhioMeansJobs.com.


“This piece of legislation streamlines and clarifies our workforce effort to eliminate confusion and to ensure that opportunities are maximized for the Ohioans who need it most,” said Representative Thompson.


House Bill 1 requires all workforce investment boards to use OhioMeansJobs.com as the only job-matching tool to streamline job matching services, reduce duplication, and maximize this increasingly important benefit to Ohioans. The bill also would provide flexibility to the Governor’s Executive Workforce Board as it relates to specifying the number of voting members needed to conduct business.


House Bill 1 will be sent to the Ohio Senate for further consideration
