COLUMBUS - 

State Representative and Chair of the House State and Local Government Committee Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) today announced that the Ohio House passed House Bill 94, legislation that would make February “Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month.”


Dating violence can be physical, emotional, or sexual in nature, and often cases go unreported. According to sponsor testimony, teen dating violence is common among high school students who dated, 21% of females and 10% of males experience some form of partner violence.


“Violence between intimate partners is not a problem that is limited solely to people of one age group,” said Rep. Anielski. “It is often difficult for abused partners in any relationship to seek help for themselves or their loved ones. The awareness month will serve to bring awareness to the general population that violence does take place in teen relationships, that there are others across the state who have suffered, and that there are resources available for all victims.”


House Bill 94 now awaits consideration by the Ohio Senate.

We must take into consideration the perspectives of all interested parties to ensure health care remains affordable and accessible for everyone.
