State Rep. Allison Russo (D-Upper Arlington) has been appointed to the Joint Medicaid Oversight Committee, a bicameral, bipartisan body that oversees the various facets of Ohio’s Medicaid program.
State Rep. Allison Russo (D-Upper Arlington) today announced that she is committed to helping alleviate the strain this unprecedented federal government shutdown is putting on families in her district.
“This irresponsible shutdown is putting undue pressure on our state and local agencies, which have been forced to compensate for this White House’s dereliction of duty,” said Russo. “Thousands of federal workers and contractors here in Ohio have already missed one paycheck and cannot afford to miss another. I urge the Trump Administration and Congress to reopen the government immediately and stop playing political chess with people’s livelihoods.”
State Rep. Allison Russo (D-Upper Arlington) took the oath of office today during the opening session of the 133rd Ohio General Assembly at the Ohio Statehouse. Rep. Russo is part of a freshman class of new Democratic State Representatives who were elected to bring a fresh perspective to the Statehouse.
