COLUMBUS—In response to comments made by Governor John Kasich this afternoon, Speaker of the Ohio House Clifford A. Rosenberger (R-Clarksville) released the following statement:

"As Speaker, I agree with Governor Kasich’s statement that, at this time, we should not allow Syrian refugees into Ohio. As we again saw this past weekend, these are very challenging times around the world, and it is critical that public leaders take precautionary steps to keep United States citizens safe. In order to protect all Americans, we must ensure that there is a stringent vetting process and appropriate security measures in place to keep danger and terror off of American soil. The protection of Ohio’s families is paramount. Therefore, I stand ready and willing to help Governor Kasich in our united mission to keep all Ohioans and Americans safe."
