State Reps. Allison Russo (D-Upper Arlington) and Bride Rose Sweeney (D-Cleveland) last week introduced new legislation, House Bill (HB) 316, that would allow family members, household members, or law enforcement officers to file for a court order temporarily preventing individuals considered to be an imminent danger to themselves or others from possessing firearms.

“In many instances of gun violence, there were clear warning signs the shooter posed a serious risk of injuring themselves or others with a firearm,” said Rep. Russo. “Extreme risk protection orders save lives by giving families and law enforcement time to quickly intervene before those warning signs escalate into tragedies, while also respecting Second amendment and due process rights.”

State Rep. Bride Rose Sweeney (D-Cleveland) today sent a letter to Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose urging him to reconsider and cancel the Sept. 6 voter purge which threatens the registration of some 235,610 Ohio voters—many of whom remain eligible to vote.

“For years, we’ve had Automated Voter Purging but not Automated Voter Registration,” wrote Sweeney. “I ask that you reconsider and cancel this voter purge so that my constituents – those who vote and those who don’t – are not struck from the rolls.

Ohio State Rep. Bride Rose Sweeney (D-Cleveland) today issued a statement in support of the finalized version of the state budget, House Bill (HB) 166. Today’s vote follows more than two weeks of Republican dysfunction and gridlock, which forced lawmakers to pass a short-term funding extension before finally compromising on a long-term deal late Tuesday.

“This isn’t the budget that Democrats wanted, but Ohioans cannot afford another interim budget. Compromise is an important part of keeping our promise to taxpayer and making government work for its people. One of the key components to my yes vote was the historic investment in higher education. Education is the great equalizer and we are expanding the opportunity to give Ohioans a better life, better job, and brighter future,” said Sweeney.
