State Rep. Jeffrey A. Crossman (D-Parma) took the oath of office during the opening session of the 134th Ohio General Assembly (GA) at the Ohio Statehouse Monday, officially beginning Crossman’s second two year term as state representative for the 15th District.
“I am eager and excited to get back to work on behalf of the people of Ohio,” said Rep. Crossman. “We have a lot to accomplish in the next two years. In the last General Assembly, we made progress on issues like road improvements, criminal justice reform, and school funding. However, there is still more work to be done, including the state’s next budget, the repeal of House Bill 6, and continuing the fight for Ohioans’ healthcare rights.”
In the last General Assembly, Rep. Crossman introduced the “Pre-existing Condition Protection Act” (HB 390), which would protect Ohioans from the loss of their healthcare in the event that the Affordable Health Care Act is repealed. The issue is now before the U.S. Supreme Court.
“I absolutely intend to reintroduce that legislation. We’re already working on it again,” said Rep. Crossman.
