COLUMBUS—State Representative Tavia Galonski (D-Akron) today released a statement following the dangerous and partisan attack on Dr. Amy Acton by House Republicans:  

“I believe in science. I trust Dr. Acton. SB 1 is a misguided attempt at usurping the governor’s authority,” Galonski said.

The amendment was attached to Senate Bill 1 in today’s State and Local Government Committee meeting without advance notice or any public testimony and was discharged from committee on a party-line vote, with all Democratic members voting against it.

The amended bill now goes to the Senate for a vote.
