April 15, 2021
Jeff LaRe News

COLUMBUS – State Representative Jeff LaRe (R-Violet Twp.) today issued the following statement follow­­ing today’s Criminal Justice Committee meeting:

“Due to the time constraints with today’s Criminal Justice Committee meeting, several witnesses were unable to testify on House Bill 99. Unfortunately, the length of committee meetings are limited. It would not have been fair to witnesses for us to recess for an undetermined length of time for today’s House session. The House Criminal Justice Committee will continue to have hearings on this legislation because it is important for us to hear from community members and interested parties who want to have their opinion heard. I apologize for the convenience, but am pleased to note that the House is in the process of working to change the committee schedule to allow for longer committee meetings in the future.”
