Rep. Stephanie Howse (D-Cleveland) today released the following statement regarding the Ohio Supreme Court’s controversial split ruling that the state did not overstep its constitutional authority when it sought to block local hiring laws around the state: 

“Invalidating Cleveland's ordinance, known as the Fannie M. Lewis Cleveland Employment Law, reaffirms the injustices that have been occurring in the workplace for generations and does nothing to help promote fair labor practices, equitable pay, and representation in the workplace. I will continue to bring to light the systematic exclusion of groups of citizens to fully participate in the construction industry and have a responsibility to fight for local families’ inclusion in the construction industry so they can live, work and retire with safety and security in Ohio. Our state government has a duty to right the wrongs of the past and if the state is incapable or unwilling to act, the state needs to get out of the way and let local communities take the necessary actions to benefit their local communities.”

State Rep. Stephanie Howse (D-Cleveland) today announced the upcoming back-to-school Ohio sales tax holiday that will take place starting on Friday, August 2 through Sunday, August 4.

“The sales tax holiday is important for hard working Ohioans to ensure their families are able to obtain the educational supplies needed to start the school year off strong. Creating a solid educational foundation starts with good, usable resources,” said Rep. Howse. “Back to school shopping should not be a burden on any hardworking family, and it is my hope that the upcoming sales tax holiday will provide assistance to our families that need it.”

Ohio State Rep. Stephanie Howse (D-Cleveland) today issued a statement in support of the finalized version of the state budget, House Bill (HB) 166. Today’s vote follows more than two weeks of Republican dysfunction and gridlock, which forced lawmakers to pass a short-term funding extension before finally compromising on a long-term deal late Tuesday.

“Today’s biennium budget that I supported has some improved investments for local communities. While compromises were made, there is still more work that needs to be done — specifically addressing a fair tax policy to ensure that all Ohioans are paying their fair share to meet the needs for the state of Ohio. We must commit to making sound investments in evidence-based health organizations that provide results in combating infant and maternal mortality, ensuring and promoting overall family wellness. While this budget is not perfect, it shows real promise that you can live, work, and retire with safety and security right here at home.
