07.06.17 - Ingram: 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.

“I am against this legislation as it flies in the face of common sense, and endangers our communities that are already grappling with the problem of gun violence,” said Rep. Catherine D. Ingram (D-Cincinnati). “We should be seeking solutions, not creating problems.”

 
 

07.06.17 - Ingram: 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.

“Even though we did not take up the Medicaid expansion freeze explicitly, a back door freeze has been put in place through threats of increased fees and premiums,” said Rep. Catherine Ingram (D-Cincinnati). “Ohioans deserve better than this budget that the legislature continues to pick apart. We should not prioritize the wealthiest at the expense of the poor and working class.”

State Rep. Catherine D. Ingram (D-Cincinnati) today applauded the House passage of House Bill (HB) 195, bipartisan legislation to improve the transportation options of Ohioans in wheelchairs. The “Improving Mobility Aid Accessibility” bill, joint-sponsored by State Rep. Bill Seitz (R-Cincinnati), passed unanimously out of the House yesterday by a 91-0 vote. 

“I am grateful my colleagues on both sides of the aisle agreed with me that all Ohioans deserve equal access to the transportation options that best meets their needs,” said Ingram. “House Bill 195 will improve the lives of Ohioans who use wheelchairs by expanding their transportation options to include taxies or newer services like Lyft and Uber, making it easier and less expensive for them to get to medical appointments and other important engagements.”

This legislation will undoubtedly improve the lives of Ohioans who use wheelchairs by making it easier and less costly to get to their medical appointments and other important engagements.”
