Columbus - 
State Senator Scott Oelslager (R- North Canton) announced that Senate Bill 122, legislation he sponsored that brings Ohio into compliance with 46 other states and jurisdictions that have adopted new reforms to the Interstate Compact for Juveniles, was signed into law by Ohio Governor John Kasich last week. The Interstate Compact for Juveniles is a collaborative mechanism used to ensure that youth on probation or parole receive supervision when they move across state lines. Without a compact in place, Ohio would have no legal recourse to supervise these youth. The Compact also provides for uniform enforcement, compliance, and data collection, and ensures that youth who flee to avoid prosecution, to escape probation or parole, or run away from home are returned to their proper jurisdiction. In addition, Kasich also signed Senate Bill 84 into law. This bill, which was also sponsored by Oelslager, makes several changes to the Ohio Truth in Music Advertising Act to provide better consumer protections from deceptive advertising regarding live music performances. Senate Bill 84 makes it an unfair act to advertise or conduct live musical performances or productions in Ohio through the use of a false, deceptive or misleading affiliation between a performing and recording group.
