State Reps. David Leland (D-Columbus), Mary Lightbody (D-Westerville) and Allison Russo (D-Upper Arlington) today announced town hall meetings TOMORROW, August 28 at 6:30 p.m. at the Norwich Township Safety Services Building in Hilliard and Thursday, August 29 at 6:00 p.m. at the Whetstone Library to discuss the state budget, bipartisan priorities and a number of recent Democratic-led wins for working people and families in Central Ohio.

 
 

08.06.19 - Rep. Leland Urges Immediate Action On Gov. DeWine's Gun Safety Proposals

 

State Rep. David Leland (D-Columbus) today released the following statement in response to Gov. DeWine’s call for bipartisan action to address gun safety for all Ohioans:

“I applaud the Governor’s proposals to take aggressive action to protect Ohioans. As Minority Leader Sykes (D-Akron) said earlier today: ‘Democrats stand ready to work together on the commonsense proposals of universal background checks and red flag protections.’

 
 

08.05.19 - Rep. Leland Responds To Republican Inaction On Gun Safety Measures In Ohio

 

State Rep. David Leland (D-Columbus) today issued a statement in response to legislative inaction on gun safety measures by the Republican-controlled General Assembly in light of the Dayton-area mass shooting that took place early on Sunday:

“This nation faces a mass-shooting epidemic, but instead of being proactive about gun safety in Ohio, state lawmakers have literally done the opposite – passing legislation that’s made it impossible for cities like Dayton and Columbus to monitor the guns on their streets and protect their citizens,” said Rep. Leland. “Just last week the Republican leadership called us back for a special session to bail out two nuclear power plants – the safety of all Ohioans should prompt an even greater commitment to act.”

 
 

07.23.19 - Rep. Leland: Taxpayer Bailout Destroys Ohio's Clean Energy Future

 

State Rep. David Leland (D-Columbus) today issued a statement in opposition to House Bill (HB) 6, a Republican-sponsored bill bailing out Ohio’s nuclear power plants and one coal-fired Indiana power plant. The bill also guts Ohio’s renewable and energy efficiency standards, which have created over 100,000 jobs and saved rate payers over 5 billion dollars.

“We should be investing in our communities and putting Ohio first and not forcing Ohioans to spend over a billion dollars bailing out bankrupt nuclear facilities and an Indiana coal plant,” said Rep. Leland. “Our goal here should be to solve the issues surrounding the nuclear facilities without destroying Ohio’s opportunity to be a part of the clean energy industrial revolution.”
