Ohio House Democratic Leader Emilia Strong Sykes (D-Akron) today issued a statement following the passage of House Bill (HB) 6:

“This was not an easy vote for some of our Democratic members, including myself,” said Rep. Sykes. “Democrats will always stand with hard-working Ohioans over corporations. HB 6 was never a Democratic bill; it was never even a bipartisan, compromise bill. It was yet another example of the Majority Party playing games, forcing impossible choices between protecting the environment and keeping food on the table for 1,400 workers and their families.
