12.08.16 - Ohio Finally Joins Majority Of States To Extend Cancer Protection To Firefighters

 

House Democratic lawmakers today heralded the passage of Senate Bill 27, legislation to ensure firefighters disabled by cancer as a result of their hazardous line of work are eligible for benefits from the workers’ compensation fund and the Ohio Police and Fire Pension Fund.

“The first responders who keep us safe shouldn’t face medical uncertainty or financial instability after years of selfless sacrifice,” said Assistant Democratic Leader Nicholas J. Celebrezze (D-Parma). “That’s why this reform ensures our everyday heroes don’t have to go it alone.”

Research conducted by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has found that firefighters show higher rates of certain types of cancer than the general U.S. population as a result of occupational exposure. The study also found that the chance of a lunch cancer diagnosis or death for a firefighter increases with the amount of time spent at fires, while the chance of leukemia death increases with the number of fire runs.   

 
 

12.07.16 - Celebrezze: Eleventh-hour Lawmaking Brings Strictest Abortion Ban In The Nation To Kasich's Desk

 

Eleventh-hour lawmaking brought the strictest abortion ban in the nation to Gov. John Kasich’s desk Tuesday evening, for his signature into law. With U.S. Senate inaction giving way to a pending U.S. Supreme Court justice appointment from President-elect Donald Trump, Ohio Republicans appear to be counting on a new federal bench to re-litigate the constitutionality of their attacks on women’s health care. But Roe v. Wade is settled law upheld most recently by the Whole Women’s Health decision which overturned undue burdens on women’s access to abortion.

 
 

06.28.16 - Assistant Minority Leader Celebrezze Comments On SNAP Audit Report

 

House Assistant Minority Leader Nicholas J. Celebrezze (D-Parma) today issued the following statement in response to the state’s audit of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) released today:

“Food security is an essential tool in the fight to prevent hunger and reduce poverty among families, veterans, and those searching for better paying jobs and struggling to regain their footing during tough economic times.

“In a state that ranks among the worst in the nation for families forced to skip meals or eat less because they can’t afford to put food on the table, SNAP helps families provide critical nutrition for their children and loved ones.
