Ohio Senate President Keith Faber today named State Senator Joe Uecker to serve as the Vice Chairman of the Senate Standing Committee on State Government Oversight and Reform. As a member of the House of Representatives, Uecker served as the Chairman of the House Standing Committee on Commerce and Labor during the previous legislative session.
“I believe that among the foundational goals held by all government officials should be to ensure an efficient, responsible government,” said Uecker. “I’m looking forward to doing just that as the Vice Chairman of the Government Oversight and Reform Committee.”
In addition to his Vice Chairmanship, Senator Uecker will also serve as a member of the Senate Civil Justice, Commerce and Labor, Energy and Natural Resources, Public Utilities, and Workforce and Economic Development Committees, as well as a member of the Senate Finance Subcommittee on Education.
Whether you take the time to place a bouquet on the grave of a loved one or march in a parade, this weekend is an opportunity for all of us to express gratitude for the sacrifice that preserves our freedom.
“The abortion industry’s practice of sending these dead babies to landfills further demonstrates these entities' utter disregard for the sanctity of human life, even in death,” said Uecker. “This law takes steps to help protect the dignity of babies whose lives ended too soon at the hands of abortionists.”
"This bill recognizes the extensive firearm instruction that service men and women undergo during military training," said Uecker. "We must ensure that our military members have the necessary resources to protect themselves without subjecting them to burdensome and redundant credentialing."
