State Representative Michele Lepore-Hagan (D-Youngstown) announced the unanimous House passage of House Bill (HB) 226, a bill requiring drivers to watch, listen and stop for on-track equipment at railroad crossings. 


“I’m very pleased the Ohio House took an important step forward in addressing what is truly a public safety issue,” said Rep. Lepore-Hagan. “By mandating a driver’s responsibility for other on-track equipment at a railroad-crossing, our state joins 29 others in recognizing these potential dangers to drivers.”


Joined by Representative Jon Cross (R-Kenton), HB 226 is a bipartisan effort that received unanimous support in the House Transportation and Public Safety Committee on Tuesday, November 19, 2019. It now moves to the Ohio Senate for consideration.
