(Columbus) – Ohio Senate President Keith Faber issued the following statement today regarding proposed Right to Work legislation in the Ohio House of Representatives:
“We have an ambitious agenda focused on job creation and economic recovery, and Right to Work legislation is not on that list. After discussions with other leaders and my caucus, I don’t believe there is current support for this issue in the General Assembly. The only purpose this discussion serves right now is to generate a bunch of breathless fundraising appeals from the Ohio Democratic Party.”

“As the son of a World War II Navy fighter pilot as well has having an uncle who was wounded in action and two grandfathers who served in World War I, I am humbled to have garnered the unanimous and bipartisan support of my colleagues in the Ohio General Assembly,” Hughes stated. “I am proud to have sponsored this measure to designate a special day for those who have received a Purple Heart."
"I just cannot imagine losing somebody because we haven't taken the time to learn more about this," said Hite. "As a former coach and educator I realized that if we raise awareness of this often-preventable condition lives could be saved."
"These men have proven that the path to achievement is not always a straight one," said Eklund. "This team has demonstrated their strength of heart and made the entire community very proud."
