08.02.19 - Rep. Galonski Announces Upcoming Back-to-school Sales Tax Holiday Weekend

 

State Rep. Tavia Galonski (D-Akron) today announced the back-to-school Ohio sales tax holiday will take place starting today, Friday, August 2, through Sunday, August 4. In 2018, state lawmakers passed legislation making this three-day, back-to-school sales tax holiday a recurring holiday each year.

“Last year, I was proud to support making the sales tax holiday a recurring event.  Having the right tools to educate yourself is just as important as the education itself. The sales tax holiday alleviates some of the financial burden that comes with starting another school year,” said Galonski.

 
 

07.23.19 - House Bill 6 Protects Jobs, Benefits Ohio Consumers, Says Rep. Galonski

 

State Rep. Tavia Galonski (D-Akron) today issued a statement in favor of House Bill (HB) 6, a bill to subsidize Ohio’s nuclear power plants and a number of other high-production energy plants that service the Buckeye State. Proponents of the bill say it will protect thousands of good paying union jobs and save consumers money on their monthly utility bills.

“I believe that the value of keeping nuclear energy jobs outweighed anything negative in the bill. Nuclear energy is cleaner than the alternatives offered by the oil and gas industry, which seemed to have spent a vast amount of resources lobbying on this issue. I’m also thankful for Ohio families that this bill saved 4,000 jobs without a net rate increase on Ohio consumers,” Galonski said.
