Senator Gayle Manning today announced the Governor’s passage of Senate Bill 64, to strengthen Ohio’s child enticement laws, and Senate Bill 57, to allow emergency responders to administer Naloxone to revive a person suffering from an apparent opioid-related overdose.

Senate Bill 64 clarifies Ohio’s law to ensure that the statute gives future courts the instruction and ability to convict individuals with intent to harm Ohio’s children. The legislation, jointly introduced with State Senator Bill Beagle (R–Tipp City), is in response to a ruling by the 9th District Court of Appeals where Ohio’s current child enticement law was found unconstitutional.

“It is imperative we make the safety and protection of our children a top priority in Ohio,” said Manning. “Individuals seeking to harm our children will now have to be held accountable.”
Senate Bill 57 establishes a pilot project in Lorain County that allows qualified emergency responders to obtain and administer Narcan (or the generic brand Naloxone), which can revive an individual who is suffering from an apparent opioid-related overdose.
“Young people in Lorain County are dying weekly because of drug overdoses,” said Manning. “This legislation will help reduce this growing problem, and will prepare our emergency responders to act quickly and save lives.”
The Governor today signed Senate Bill 64 and Senate Bill 57.
