06.23.17 - Rep. Rogers Announces House Passage Of Bipartisan Bill For Enhanced Driver's License

 

State Rep. John Rogers (D-Mentor-on-the-Lake) on Wednesday hailed the House passage of House Bill (HB) 60, legislation authorizing the issuance of an enhanced driver’s license, enhanced commercial driver’s license (CDL), and enhanced identification (ID) card to facilitate border crossings between the United States, Canada and Mexico.

HB 60, sponsored by Rep. Rogers and state Rep. Steve Hambley (R-Brunswick), would allow these enhanced driver’s licenses to be used by Ohio residents seeking to enter Canada or Mexico at authorized land and sea ports. These IDs contain specific technology and security features approved by the U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security, and may be used in the same manner as a driver’s license, CDL or ID card.

06.07.17 - Bipartisan Pro Bono Legislation Receives First Hearing In Ohio House

 

State Reps. John M. Rogers (D-Mentor-on-the-Lake) this week testified in support of House Bill (HB) 232, his bipartisan legislation to encourage Ohio lawyers to conduct pro bono legal work. Joint-sponsored by state Rep. Jeffery Rezabek (R-Clayton), HB 232 allows lawyers or law firms to claim a tax deduction for engaging in pro bono work and providing certain legal services for impoverished clients through a legal aid entity. 

“Plaintiffs who have experienced harassment, divorce and many other civil injustices may lose winnable cases because they do not have the financial means to afford legal counsel,” said Rogers. “Legal aid provides an opportunity for attorneys to donate their time and skills to assist those who would otherwise be left behind in the complex web of the legal system.”

“The Ohio EPA loan to Willoughby is an example of how the state and local communities can work together to improve infrastructure while also protecting our environment,” said Rogers. “I am pleased to see the state work with the city to help complete this important project while preserving a tremendous resource.”
