COLUMBUS — State Senator Larry Obhof today announced the passage of legislation that seeks to improve efforts at the state and local levels to better match job opportunities and training programs with those seeking work. House Bill 1, sponsored by Representatives Mark Romanchuk (R- Ontario) and Tim Derickson (R- Hanover Township) is companion legislation to Senate Bill 2, which passed the Senate in March.

“There are more than 100,000 jobs posted on the ‘OhioMeansJobs’ system. This legislation will help job seekers take advantage of the resources available at the state and local level to help them in their search for work,” Obhof said. “As we continue our efforts to create more job opportunities for Ohioans, partnerships like the one created in House Bill 1 will make it easier to match those looking for work with open positions.”

Under House Bill 1, each of the one-stop job centers in Ohio would be linked with OhioMeansJobs.com, a statewide database of job openings that is available to both employers and to those looking for work. This will enable individuals to access a greater number of resources and job opportunities.

In addition to House Bill 1, the Senate today approved House Bill 77, which designates October as “Manufacturing Month” in Ohio.
