State Representative Louis W. Blessing III (R-Colerain) today applauded the House’s passage of House Bill 244. This legislation works to honor those individuals who have served in the armed forces and as police officers or other first responders by designating November 10th as “Armed Services, Peace Officer, First Responder and Dual Service Recognition Day.”


 


“I am very pleased that the Ohio House of Representatives passed this legislation that acknowledges the hard work our Armed Service, Peace Officer, First Responsers, and Duel Service members do,” said Rep. Blessing. These men and women work hard every day to ensure that the people of Ohio are safe and they deserve to be recognized for that hard work.”


 


The bill, joint-sponsored by Speaker of the Ohio House Clifford A. Rosenberger (R-Clarksville) and State Representative Terry Johnson (R-McDermott), recognizes those who have sacrificed for their communities and their country by serving in the military and/or as police officers or first responders.
