The Ohio House of Representatives today approved the passage of House Joint Resolution 1, which authorizes the request by Governor John Kasich to hold the State of the State address in Wilmington on February 24th. Speaker of the Ohio House, Clifford A. Rosenberger, released the following statement in response to the bipartisan resolution:

“I’m pleased by the House’s decision today to authorize the State of the State to be held in my home district and in the great city of Wilmington. I believe southwest Ohio is an ideal location to showcase how cities across the state are growing stronger and prospering, and for that I’m grateful to the governor for seeking out Wilmington for this occasion.

“This State of the State also helps to symbolize the beginning of a new General Assembly and another opportunity for us to work together to improve the state further through common sense legislation and innovative ideas. I look forward to hearing more about the governor’s priorities for this year at the address, and I have no doubt that the people of southwest Ohio will make legislators and the governor feel welcome.”
