05.24.16 - Rep. Johnson's Sentencing Reform Bill Heads To Governor's Desk

 

State Rep. Greta Johnson (D-Akron) today applauded the Senate passage of House Bill (HB) 123, bipartisan legislation to eliminate some costly pre-sentence investigation reports (PSI) in an effort to streamline rehabilitation and eliminate unnecessary costs to local courts. 

“Without the requirement for a PSI prior to the imposition of community control, communities can save valuable docket space, reduce administrative costs and connect offenders with immediate access to the treatment and services they so desperately need,” said Johnson. “This is a common sense cost-saving reform measure, and the fact that both chambers have enthusiastically passed this legislation speaks volumes to its validity and importance for our judicial systems.”

05.12.16 - Local Hiring Ban Bill Heads To Governor For Final Approval

 

State Rep. Greta Johnson (D-Akron) today responded to the Senate passage of House Bill (HB) 180, legislation to prohibit cities and other municipalities from setting local hiring goals for public works projects.

“This legislation is an affront to communities like Akron that are using local solutions to put people back to work on projects their tax dollars help finance. Local communities should be able to maintain their freedom to hire local residents without heavy-handed state restrictions that end local control and outsource good-paying Ohio jobs to workers in neighboring states,” said Johnson. “As Ohio lawmakers, we should be doing everything in our power to put Ohio workers first.”

In honor of National Public Safety Telecommunications Week, State Rep. Greta Johnson (D-Akron) today announced the introduction of “Kari’s Law”, legislation that aims to make it easier for Ohioans to dial 9-1-1 in cases of emergency.
