02.06.18 - Rogers: Bipartisan Redistricting Reform Clears Last Legislative Hurdle Before Voters Have Final Say In May

 

Following months of negotiation, the Ohio House today passed Senate Joint Resolution 5, bipartisan legislation that puts a constitutional amendment before voters in May to restrict congressional gerrymandering in the state. 

“Today’s actions are the result of an effort in compromise. Although nothing is perfect, I applaud the bipartisan effort the authors of this legislation intended to create a fair and solid framework to improve the structuring of congressional districts and form a better representation of Ohio’s voting citizens,” said state Rep. John Rogers (D-Mentor-on-the-Lake). “It is my hope Senate Joint Resolution 5 will allow our congressional districts to be more representative, more responsive and certainly less dysfunctional. There is always room for improvement at the federal level, and is my hope that this legislation will enable Ohio’s congressional delegation to improve their representation of our citizens and their interests.”

02.02.18 - Rogers Supports Bipartisan Funding Fix For Abandoned Local Wells

 

State Rep. John Rogers (D-Mentor-on-the-Lake) today announced the Ohio House recently passed House Bill 225, bipartisan legislation that would provide needed resources to safely fix and seal abandoned oil and gas drilling wells in Lake County and throughout Ohio.

“Our local natural resources are an important part of our community’s economic strength and appeal,” said Rogers. “The responsibility to safely restore and protect our lands and aquifers for the future comes with accessing those resources. From our pristine waters to what’s beneath our feet, this bill better positions us to do exactly that.”

With his co-sponsorship and vote supporting this legislation, Rep. Rogers noted the bill results in a 200-percent increase in funding, stemming from redirected revenues generated by oil and gas operations around the state.
