Miller (D-Columbus) today announced the introduction of the Blight Bill, bipartisan legislation to expedite legal action against landlords whose negligence creates a safe haven for illegal activity on their properties.

State Reps. Adam C. Miller (D-Columbus) and Bernadine Kennedy Kent (D-Columbus) recently introduced new legislation titled the School Safety Drill bill to help improve emergency response readiness in school districts across the state.
“The School Safety Drill bill will directly improve communication between school districts and first responders by involving all qualified parties in the emergency procedure rehearsal,” said Miller, a former school board member, teacher and a Lieutenant Colonel in the Army Reserve JAG Corps with military service in Afghanistan. “The Rehearsal of Concept (ROC) drill used in the military is a proven best practice in helping identify gaps in emergency response planning. I believe school districts need a similar tool to help ensure our students are safe.”
State Reps. Adam Miller (D-Columbus) and Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) this week gave sponsor testimony before the House Armed Services, Veterans Affairs, and Homeland Security Committee in support of House Bill 192, bipartisan legislation to increase military representation across the state by allowing Veterans Services Commission’s in Ohio counties to add up to two additional members.
“The military spouse is the service member’s secret weapon. The military spouse provides the resiliency, the support, and all of the unspoken understanding so critical for those called to serve in harm’s way. Our Veteran’s Services capacity will expand tenfold with the addition of a military spouse in our commissions,” said Miller.
