Rep. Mary Lightbody (D-Westerville) today announced the unanimous passage of Senate Bill (SB) 77, bipartisan legislation to designate June 12 as Women Veteran’s Day. Rep. Lightbody said SB 77 reaffirms Ohio’s promise to care for and honor the more than 67,000 women veterans living across the state. Women make up nearly 10 percent of all veterans nationally.


“I applaud the unanimous vote by the Ohio House today to support Senate Bill 77 and designate ‘Women Veterans’ Day’ on June 12. Generations of women have served in the Armed Services throughout the history of U.S. wars and conflicts. Each year, the number of women serving the United States continues to grow and the recognition of this day honors those who serve,” said Rep. Lightbody.


After passing the House, the bill moves to the governor’s desk to be signed into law.
