State Rep. Dan Ramos (D-Lorain) will attend a White House briefing today on the President’s priorities followed by the arrival ceremony of Pope Francis.

“It is an incredible honor to represent our community and our state in joining our President in welcoming His Holiness to the United States,” said Rep. Ramos. “One cannot help but be inspired by the Pope and his priorities of caring for the downtrodden as well as the Earth, which connects us all. I look forward to hearing Pope Francis' message to the American people.”

The White House meeting is happening today, Tuesday, September 22, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. to discuss two of the President’s priorities, climate change and criminal justice reform. Rep. Ramos will be in attendance along with senior White House officials and other state legislators.

“I am eager to work alongside the President and his administration on issues that are important to Lorain County and Ohio,” said Rep. Ramos. “These issues, in particular, are vital as we fight the heroin epidemic and work to provide both lower power rates and a sustainable, healthier future.”

His Holiness Pope Francis visits D.C. to continue his discussion with President Barack Obama on their shared values and commitments on the environment, equal opportunity for all, protecting religious freedom, caring for the poor and integrating immigrants and refugees into communities. The Pope Francis Arrival Ceremony will be held tomorrow Wednesday, September 23 at 9:15 a.m.

This is the first time the Holy Father will visit the United States as Pope.

In fact, Ohio families and students face the highest burden of student loan debt in the nation, with the Buckeye State ranking 45th nationally for college affordability. With college out of reach for too many families and students, state Rep. Dan Ramos (D-Lorain) today introduced legislation to cover 90 percent of the cost for students to attend public college in Ohio. The Ohio Lets Everyone Achieve Right Now (LEARN) tax credit would make Ohio the first state to make college truly affordable for all students.
