Columbus - 
State Senator Larry Obhof (R- Montville Township) testified before the Senate Education Committee recently in support of Senate Bill 165, which would require the study of certain historical documents as part of the American history and government curriculum for high school students. Documents to be studied would include the Declaration of Independence, the United States and Ohio Constitutions, and the Northwest Ordinance. Obhof is co-sponsoring Senate Bill 165 with Senator Tim Grendell (R- Chesterland). "It is important that students understand how and why our government operates as it does," Obhof testified. "By studying these primary documents, students will gain a better understanding of our federal and state governments, and will more fully understand both their rights and America's unique place in history."
Senator Obhof represents the 22nd Ohio Senate District, which encompasses Medina, Wayne, and Holmes counties as well as portions of Ashland County. For more information, please visit
