10.28.14 - Ohio Legislature Backs Innovative Program To Help Local Governments

 

A few years ago Ohio’s economy was on a downward spiral, our credit rating was downgraded and our state was in a fiscal mess.  When Governor Kasich took office we balanced the budget which required making up for an $8 billion dollar budget hole; and we did it without raising taxes.  Making difficult decisions was necessary at this time.  As the economy went down so did local government funds.  Providing unique ways to help the budgets of local governments has been a priority of all members of state government.

 
 

10.22.14 - Review Of The Law Enforcement Study Committee

 

As I travel west central Ohio, I continue to hear concerns about the growing drug problem in our region—and how it is affecting the entire state.  I have always been in favor of fighting drugs because they tear our families apart and cripple the workforce. That is why I traveled the state this summer to learn more about this problem and the obstacles that slow law enforcement’s ability to respond to this epidemic.

 
 

10.15.14 - Continued Interest In Reducing Nutrient Loading In Ohio Waterways

 

Lake Erie covers almost 10,000 square miles and serves as a source of pride for the State of Ohio.  Acting as the north coast of Ohio, this lake is a natural landmark known throughout North America and beyond.  Keeping the water in the lake potable and healthy is an important task that all Ohioans should be a part of.

 
 

10.09.14 - Taking Steps To Remove And Replace Common Core

 

Common Core, an attempt at nationalizing education standards, has been a hot topic in Columbus and the west central Ohio for over a year now.  Efforts have been made in the House Education Committee to repeal the standards and or limit the impacts of the Common Core on our schools. Some attempts at limiting the impacts of the Common Core have been successful and are being implemented, but a full repeal of the Common Core has proved a difficult feat.
