06.30.15 - Rogers: Local Hiring Ban Axes Local Control, Sends Ohio Jobs Out Of State

 

State Rep. John Rogers (D-Mentor-on-the-Lake) today expressed disappointment in the passage of House Bill 180, legislation that prohibits cities and other municipalities from setting minimum standards for hiring local residents for public works projects. The minimum residency standards, currently in place in cities and municipalities around the state, let qualified workers earn the opportunity to find rewarding employment in their own communities.  

“It continuously amazes me that those very individuals that decry federal involvement and oversight with respect to the State of Ohio’s operations and activities, continue to wrap their hands around the necks of local governments,” said Rogers.
