Rep. Tavia Galonski (D-Akron) today announced the unanimous passage of Senate Bill (SB) 77, bipartisan legislation to designate June 12 as Women Veteran’s Day. Rep. Galonski said SB 77 reaffirms Ohio’s promise to care for and honor the more than 67,000 women veterans living across the state. Women make up nearly 10 percent of all veterans nationally.

“I want to encourage women in Ohio to join the armed services and this bill honors those making that choice,” said Rep. Galonski.

After passing the House, the bill moves to the governor’s desk to be signed into law.
