"Ohioans already carry the heavy burden of state and federal income taxes," added Jordan. "This legislation eliminates the flaw in our tax system that allows municipalities to add an additional and undemocratic burden."
"In the last several years, we have seen numerous attempts to deny Americans of their constitutionally protected right to own a firearm without fear of arbitrary government seizure," said Jordan. "In the event that our government misconstrues the Constitution in enforcing this right, we must be vigilant in safeguarding Ohioans."
During the Opening Ceremonies, State Senator Kris Jordan (R–Ostrander) was sworn in for his second term in the Ohio Senate, representing the 19th District in the state legislature’s upper chamber. Senator Jordan won reelection to the seat in the November 4, 2014 General Election.
