COLUMBUS— State Rep. Phil Robinson (D-Solon) released the following statement today on his committee assignments for the 134th General Assembly:

“It is an honor to continue to serve as the ranking member on the Primary and Secondary Education committee. I look forward to building off of the bipartisan work we started last General Assembly in the House with Chairwoman Manning, Vice-Chairman Bird, and the members of the committee in both parties. 

In order to secure the Ohio promise for our children, we must continue our work on critical K-12 education issues such as fair school funding, COVID-19 relief for schools and students, state report cards, school takeovers, EdChoice vouchers, and many more key policies.

Also, I am looking forward to continuing my work on the Ways and Means committee, ensuring our state’s tax system treats the working class, middle class, and all families and small businesses fairly.

My new assignment to the Economic and Workforce Development committee is both critical to Ohio and part of some of my top policy priorities. My office will focus on key economic issues including expanding apprenticeship opportunities and investing in career and technical education (CTE). These policies are vital to improving Ohioans’ options for fulfilling the American dream,” said Rep. Robinson.

Rep. Robinson will serve on the following committees:

·         Primary & Secondary Education, Ranking Member

·         Economic & Workforce Development

·         Ways & Means
