State Rep. Dan Ramos (D-Lorain) today announced the House passage of House Bill (HB) 85, bipartisan legislation to include age-appropriate sexual abuse education and prevention in Ohio’s public, charter and STEM school systems and require teachers to attend sexual abuse training courses to recognize signs of abuse.

“This legislation will assure that all children receive essential educational courses to know that unwanted abusive touch is never acceptable,” said Ramos, a primary sponsor of the bill. “It's a crime regardless of the relationship of the abuser, and children need to have the necessary resources available to be able to tell an adult and seek help. This bill will protect our children's innocence.”

HB 85 now moves to the Senate for further consideration.

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.
