COLUMBUS –The Ohio House of Representatives passed House Resolution 292, announced State Representative Dick Stein (R-Norwalk).
The resolution, supported by Stein, expresses the Ohio House’s unwavering support for the people of Israel and condemns the recent attacks against the State of Israel.
“I stand with my colleagues in support of the people of Israel,” said Stein. “The unprovoked attacks by Hamas have left hundreds of innocent people dead. I pray for those who have witnessed unimaginable tragedies and extreme violence.”
Stein also voted in favor of the Ohio Homeowners Relief Act, a legislative response to property tax increases, which will modify the procedures used by the Tax Commissioner to conduct property tax sales assessment ratio studies.
The bill will require the Commissioner to work alongside local elected officials and weigh the past three years of a county’s property values to determine property tax instead of just one.
“The Ohio Homeowners Relief Act is a step in the right direction as we continue to find relief for Ohioans in the 54th House District who are soon potentially facing historic property tax increases.”
Stein is also in support of the recently introduced legislation, the Innocence Act. The legislation will create an age verification process to prevent minors from accessing online pornographic materials and will ensure privacy protections for both children and adults to prevent their image and likeness from being used in “deepfake” pornographic materials.
“I am proud to co-sponsor legislation that will protect our children from the dangers of pornography,” said Stein.
The legislation awaits committee assignment.
