05.24.17 - Patterson Applauds House Passage Of "back-to-school" Sales Tax Holiday

 

State Rep. John Patterson (D-Jefferson) today applauded the House passage of Senate Bill (SB) 9, bipartisan legislation to establish a three-day sales tax “holiday” during the weekend of August 4-6, 2017 for “back-to-school” clothing and school supplies. This will be the third consecutive year that Ohio institutes such a tax holiday if the measure is signed by Gov. John Kasich. 

Rep. Patterson’s House Bill 89, introduced in February, served as companion legislation to SB 9. 

“It has been my pleasure, over the last two General Assemblies, to carry the companion bill in the House for this important legislation,” said Patterson. “For Ohio families struggling to make ends meet, the financial struggle of readying children for school each year is an especially burdensome challenge to overcome. It is my hope that our bipartisan work on this bill will result in crucial savings for working families.”

State Rep. John Patterson (D-Jefferson) recently welcomed Patricia Fisher, clerk-treasurer for the Village of Jefferson, to the Statehouse to testify before the Ohio House Finance Committee on House Bill 49, the state’s biennial budget legislation.

“Patricia is a tireless public servant who cares greatly for the Village of Jefferson,” said Patterson. “By traveling to Columbus to voice her opposition to provisions of the state budget, she demonstrated once again her integrity and dedication to bettering our community.”

“Although I am no longer in the classroom every day, I never pass up the opportunity to educate young people on the importance of civic engagement,” said Patterson. “Ms. Brand is a bright young leader in our community and I hope she shares the insights and experiences gained today with her friends and peers back home.” 

 
 

03.02.17 - Patterson: State Transportation Budget Clears Ohio House

 

In a bipartisan 83-13 vote, the Ohio House yesterday approved the proposed budget plans for the Ohio Department of Transportation and several other state agencies. House Bill 26, the $7.8 billion transportation bill, largely funds infrastructure projects and public safety programs over the next two fiscal years.  

“This transportation budget is a small step in the right direction, but resolving our infrastructure needs remains a serious challenge,” said State Rep. John Patterson (D-Jefferson). “Ohio must invest adequately to bring our roads, bridges, water and sewer systems, and wastewater facilities up to the standards necessary to retain and attract business and industry. In short, investments in infrastructure will lead to the job creation and economic growth so desperately needed throughout our state.”
