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.

02.12.16 - Five Years After SB5, Ohio Workers Still Face Attacks

 

Five years ago this month, Senate Bill 5 was introduced in the Ohio Senate to strip workers of their right to come together and speak with one voice to negotiate fairer wages and safer workplaces.

In the months that followed, tens of thousands of Ohioans from all walks of life traveled to Columbus to rally against the extreme measure, and that fall voters sent a clear message to politicians at the Statehouse when they soundly overturned Issue 2 at the ballot box.

Despite the overwhelming rejection of SB5/Issue 2, Ohio’s working families continue to face legislative attempts by Republicans to gut the prevailing wage law, slash workers’ unemployment compensation benefits to give employers a tax cut, and restrict workers’ right to collectively bargain for fair wages and safe workplaces.

 
 

06.26.15 - Rep. Celebrezze Issues Statement On Historic Supreme Court Ruling

 

On Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry. The historic 5-4 decision overturns a 6th Circuit Court case brought by Ohio native Jim Obergefell and invalidates bans on same-sex marriage across the country, including the one in Ohio. Rep. Celebrezze issued this statement following the court’s historic ruling:

"Today's historic decision by the United States Supreme Court regarding marriage equality should be celebrated by all Ohioans and Americans.  As not only a legislator who has sworn to protect our nation's and state's constitution but also as an attorney I am overjoyed that the Supreme Court rendered this decision."
