11.14.18 - Valley Lawmakers Push For Commonsense Gun Safety As GOP Passes So-called Stand Your Ground Bill


Ohio House Democratic state lawmakers today voted against House Bill (HB) 228, the so-called Stand Your Ground bill, a Republican-sponsored effort to loosen gun safety standards by reducing firearm offenses, making it harder to prosecute gun violence cases and preempting local authority to enact commonsense safety protections for Ohio families.

“With ramped up hatred and divisive rhetoric across the nation, there has never been a worse time to pass a bill like this,” said Rep. Michele Lepore-Hagan (D-Youngstown). “This dangerous and divisive legislation encourages life-threatening violence instead of encouraging cooler heads to prevail.”

HB 228 would reverse Ohio’s standard of proof in gun violence cases, requiring the state to prove that a defendant was not using self-defense. In addition, the bill would erode home-rule authority by preempting local control over gun safety regulations. Finally, HB 228 reduces firearm offenses to minor misdemeanors and eliminates certain requirements for those driving with a concealed weapon.

08.01.18 - Lepore-Hagan: Back-to-school Sales Tax Holiday Starts This Weekend


State Rep. Michele Lepore-Hagan (D-Youngstown) today announced Ohio’s back-to-school sales tax-free holiday scheduled for this weekend, August 3-5, as a result of the passage of Senate Bill (SB) 226. The annual event helps lessen the sting of the 4.5 percent statewide sales tax hike passed by Republican lawmakers in the 2013 state budget. The hike has cost taxpayers almost $2 billion more since then, according to state revenue numbers.

“I am proud to support SB 226, which passed 93-3 in the House, to provide a small relief to families across Ohio,” said Lepore-Hagan. “Additionally, this legislation can boost our economy by keeping Ohio dollars local instead of being spent across the state line. SB 226 is a step in the right direction, and I look forward to supporting future legislation like this that benefits both families and businesses.”
