12.05.17 - Legislators Introduce Bipartisan Legislation To Create Replica Vehicle Titles

 

State Representatives John Patterson (D-Jefferson) and John Becker (R-Union Township) recently introduced House Bill (HB) 421, legislation allowing motor vehicle owners to indicate on a vehicle’s title whether it is a replica vehicle.

“Under current law, there is no way to indicate on a vehicle’s title that it is a replica,” said Rep. Patterson. “Hot rod enthusiasts should have the ability to prove that their vehicle is a true vintage car, not a replica using modern parts. Current law creates confusion, especially for law enforcement. We want to be sure that the official documentation for the vehicle is as accurate as possible.”

 
 

12.01.17 - Local Leaders Travel To Ohio Statehouse To Testify On Rep. Patterson's Waste Disposal Bill

 

Earlier this week, Ashtabula City Manager Jim Timonere and Ashtabula County Auditor Roger Corlett provided proponent testimony during a committee hearing at the Ohio Statehouse on House Bill (HB) 323, legislation sponsored by state Rep. John Patterson (D-Jefferson) to correct an oversight from a bill passed last year. The previous legislation inadvertently overturned waste disposal collection procedures that had been in place for years. HB 323 seeks to restore the previous common practice. 

 
 

10.27.17 - Lawmakers Announce Bipartisan Legislation To Reduce Ohio 'brain Drain'

 

State Reps. John Patterson (D-Jefferson) and Rick Carfagna (R-Genoa Township) today announced the introduction of House Bill 396, bipartisan legislation to create the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Degree Loan Repayment Program.

“The Ohio ‘brain drain’ is not a new issue,” said Patterson. “It is a known fact that for years, many STEM students who attend our universities leave Ohio upon graduation for better-paying jobs in other states. This legislation will help incentivize STEM specialists to stay in Ohio, fostering economic development that will benefit our students, our business community and our state as we strive to establish a workforce for the economy of the future.”

 
 

08.02.17 - Rep. Patterson Encourages Ohio Families To Take Advantage Of Tax-free Shopping This Weekend

 

State Rep. John Patterson (D-Jefferson) today announced Ohio’s third sales tax-free holiday scheduled for this weekend, August 4-6. The tax-free holiday runs Friday through Sunday and covers many back-to-school items, including clothing, school supplies and instructional materials. This year’s sales tax holiday was created through the passage of Senate Bill 9, bipartisan companion legislation to Patterson and State Rep. Brigid Kelly’s (D-Cincinnati) House Bill 89. 

“This is a great opportunity for Ohio families to save money as they prepare their young ones for the upcoming school year,” said Patterson. “This can often be a stressful time of year for families who may struggle to afford to buy their children school supplies and new clothes. I’m proud of the bipartisan work we’ve done to help ease that burden. In addition, I’m very excited about the boost the tax holiday will bring to our local economy as shoppers choose to support local businesses instead of crossing state lines to shop in Pennsylvania.”
