COLUMBUS - 

State Representative Kristina Daley Roegner (R-Hudson) applauded the Ohio House of Representatives’ passage of House Bills 1 and 2. House Bill 1 strives to streamline Ohio’s workforce development efforts and make it easier for Ohioans to utilize the resources that are available to them.


House Bill 1 rebrands all of the state’s patchwork of workforce centers (also known as One-Stops) as “Ohio Means Jobs ___ County” to ensure consistency, reduce public confusion, and connect these centers directly to OhioMeansJobs.com.


House Bill 2 requires all applicants for unemployment insurance to register with OhioMeansJobs.com prior to applying for benefits.


House Bill 2 also requires applicants to make direct contact with their local One-Stop (future Ohio Means Jobs office) by the eighth week of unemployment benefits. These requirements aim to ensure that unemployment insurance applicants and recipients are maximizing their job search opportunities and will help connect the patchwork of different services that exist for individuals on unemployment insurance.


“What I really like about this legislation is that it directly links receiving an unemployment benefit from the state with personal responsibility and accountability,” said Representative Roegner.


In 2011, OhioMeansJobs.com saw more than 31.5 million total job searches from more than 2.2 million unique visitors. In 2012, this number increased to 54.6 million searches from more than 2.7 million unique visitors.


House Bills 1 and 2 will both now be sent to the Ohio Senate for further consideration.
