State Representative Bob Cupp (R-Allen County) was recently selected by the Speaker of the Ohio House to serve on the newly created Unemployment Compensation Reform Joint Committee.


The group, composed of Ohio House and Senate legislators, is tasked with reviewing the stability and sustainability of the state’s unemployment compensation system with the goal of determining what reforms may be needed to assure long-term solvency of the system. A major emphasis will be placed on receiving input from labor groups, the business community, and, Ohio’s workforce.


“It is vitally important that a long-term solution for Ohio’s unemployment compensation system be developed,” said Cupp.  “This is important not only for those who become unemployed by no fault of their own and depend on the system to tide them over as they seek a new job; but employers, who pay the bill, also need to be assured that the system is efficient and encourages a prompt return to work.”


Other members from the Ohio House appointed to the committee include: State Representatives Kirk Schuring (R-Canton), Gary Scherer (R-Circleville), and Jack Cera (D-Bellaire).


Members appointed to the committee from the Ohio Senate include: Senators Bob Peterson (R-Sabina), Randy Gardner (R-Bowling Green), Bill Seitz (R-Cincinnati), and Kenny Yuko (D-Richmond Heights).
