Last week was the busiest yet in Columbus with a number of bills moving through committees and onto the Senate and House floors for votes. Not only did we celebrate March 1 as Ohio’s Statehood Day, recognizing the day in 1803 when the Ohio General Assembly met for the first time, but legislators were also visited by a number of statewide advocacy groups that championed their great causes. I am excited to share some of the effective legislation my colleagues and I were able to pass as we continue to serve our Ohio citizens.
