12.08.16 - Leland Issues Statement On Passing Of US Sen. John Glenn

 

State Rep. David Leland (D-Columbus) issued a statement in response to the death today of Ohio astronaut and U.S. Sen. John Glenn. Glenn, 95, was the first American to orbit the earth and later had a successful 25-year span of service as a U.S. Senator from Ohio.

 “John Glenn was the ultimate All-American, All-American military pilot, All-American space pioneer, All-American public servant. 

“John Glenn embodied the best of America in every aspect of his life. My prayer for America is that we are able to produce many more public servants like John Glenn.”

 
 

12.01.16 - Leland: Partisan Rejection Of Kasich PUCO Appointee Underscores Need For H.B. 122

 

Along party lines, the Ohio Senate’s Public Utilities Committee today rejected Gov. John Kasich’s appointment of M. Howard Petricoff, a Democrat, to the Public Utility Commission of Ohio (PUCO). Petricoff’s appointment to the PUCO more closely followed historical interpretations of Ohio law that prevents PUCO from having more than three commissioners affiliated with or belonging to the same political party.

“The Senate’s rejection of Mr. Petricoff is a case in point as to why reform is needed in the way Ohio’s public utility law has been interpreted in recent years,” said David Leland (D-Columbus). “In Mr. Petricoff, it seems we have a qualified and experienced choice that would bring balance and diversity in philosophy to the work of the commission, but recent party-line appointments have empowered lawmakers to put political party above all else. Balance and competing perspectives are fundamental to ensuring sound public policy that weighs the interests of business with the health and checkbooks of Ohio consumers.”

 
 

10.26.16 - Letter: Clean Energy Yields Jobs

 

To protect public health while driving economic growth, it is time to take action on climate. On Sept. 27, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit heard legal arguments on the EPA’s Clean Power Plan. Its decision will have a significant impact here in Ohio.

 
 

06.27.16 - Rep. Leland Comments On U.S. Supreme Court Ruling Affirming Women's Right To Comprehensive Healthcare

 

State Rep. David Leland (D-Columbus) today released the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court decision in the case of Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, in which the court found that restrictions on access to comprehensive healthcare in Texas placed an undue burden on women, violating the American Constitution:  

“I applaud the Supreme Court’s decision in Whole Woman’s Health v Hellerstedt, which once again confirms that access to reproductive healthcare is a constitutionally protected right and must be treated as such.”
