Ohio has made incredible strides in offering workforce development opportunities to our residents over the past few years. While serving as chairman of the House Workforce Development Study Committee, we learned from people all over the state about programs that are helping to develop a well-trained workforce in Ohio. After hearing testimony from nearly one hundred witnesses, we affirmed what the committee already knew to be true: Ohioans are hard-working, motivated and dedicated individuals that steadfastly contribute to the livelihood of this great state.
The Ohio House of Representatives today passed House Bill 1, which strives to streamline Ohio’s workforce development efforts and make it easier for Ohioans to utilize the resources that are available to them.
State Representatives Tim Derickson (R-Hanover Twp.) and Tim Brown (R-Bowling Green) today applauded the Ohio House of Representatives’ passage of House Bill 2, which requires all applicants for unemployment insurance to register with OhioMeansJobs.com prior to applying for benefits.
