02.16.17 - Rep. Antonio Speaks Out Against Pastor Protection Act In House Committee

 

Breaking with Statehouse tradition, State Rep. Nickie J. Antonio (D-Lakewood) yesterday presented opponent testimony on House Bill 36 – dubbed the “Pastor Protection Act” by supporters – in the House Community and Family Advancement Committee:

02.08.17 - Bipartisan Step Therapy Legislation To Improve Patient Access To Medicine

 

In a Statehouse press conference this morning, Rep. Nickie J. Antonio (D-Lakewood) joined the Ohio Step Therapy Coalition and Senators Charleta Tavares (D-Columbus) and Peggy Lehner (R-Kettering) to announce they will soon reintroduce legislation to improve patient access to vital prescription medicine.

“It only makes sense for a city or other local government to hire its own people for public work. It is beyond my comprehension why our Attorney General would want to waste taxpayer dollars appealing this decision, while our precious resources could be much better spent on attacking the opiate epidemic or human trafficking.”
