COLUMBUS- State Representative Niraj Antani (R-Miamisburg) applauded the Senate’s vote pass on the repeal of the “pink” tax; a tax on tampons and other feminine hygiene products. The Senate voted 30-1 to concur to the House amendments on SB 26, including the pink tax repeal. Representative Antani is a sponsor of the bill to repeal the tax on tampons and other feminine hygiene products. The repeal was attached as an amendment in Senate Bill 26, which provides a tax credit to teachers who purchase school supplies. The bill now goes before the Governor’s desk for his signature.


Representative Antani released the following statement regarding the passage:


 “I want to thank Senate President Obhof, Senate leadership, and all the Senators who voted today to repeal the tax on tampons and other feminine hygiene products. Today is a triumph for all women in Ohio. Through the passage of this bill, women will see significant savings on tampons and other feminine hygiene products. Ohio’s taxes must be applied evenhandedly to everyone and with the repeal of this tax, women have moved one step closer to being treated more equitably under the law. I look forward to the Governor hopefully signing this bill into law!”
