COLUMBUS – State Rep. Jon Cross (R-Kenton) today issued the following statement regarding Governor DeWine’s reopening plans during his statewide address on Wednesday:
“I am encouraged that Governor DeWine finally listened to the legislature and is removing the restrictive health orders across our state. However, we should not be treating our healthcare needs like a game show.
I do not support using gameshow gimmicks with our federal tax dollars. Instead of raffling off $5 million from the American Recovery Act, the governor should focus his efforts on removing the additional unemployment stimulus and getting Ohioans back to work. As our state opens back up, we cannot risk having a workforce shortage that impends our ongoing economic recovery.”
