COLUMBUS— State lawmakers returned to the Statehouse today to address the COVID-19 crisis and provide immediate relief to everyday Ohioans. State Rep. Sedrick Denson (D-Cincinnati) released a statement today following the unanimous passage of an omnibus bill (HB 197) that would prohibit utility shut-offs, waive state testing requirements, freeze EdChoice eligibility, extend voting in the primary election, postpone the state income tax filing deadline among several other measures.
State Rep. Sedrick Denson (D-Cincinnati) today released the following statement in celebration of National Voter Registration Day:
“It is absolutely crucial to be registered to vote, and to keep that information updated” said Rep. Denson. “Dozens and dozens of voters in my district have been removed from the rolls- many of whom merely moved within Hamilton Co. itself. County Boards of Election can only be successful when the information they receive from the Secretary of State is complete and correct.”
State Reps. Sedrick Denson (D-Cincinnati), Catherine Ingram (D-Cincinnati), Brigid Kelly (D-Cincinnati) and Jessica E. Miranda (D-Forest Park) held a community town hall last Thursday as part of the Ohio Promise Town Hall Tour, a statewide legislative town hall series hosted by House Democratic members. The purpose of the tour is to hear from constituents in their districts about their most pressing concerns, answer questions, and discuss the state budget, bipartisan priorities and a number of recent Democratic-led, legislative wins for working people and families.
“I really appreciate People Working Cooperatively allowing us to use their beautiful space,” said Rep. Denson. “I enjoyed hearing the thoughts and concerns of those in attendance, and can’t wait to incorporate that into what I’m doing in Columbus at the Statehouse.”
State Reps. Sedrick Denson (D-Cincinnati), Catherine Ingram (D-Cincinnati), Brigid Kelly (D-Cincinnati) and Jessica Miranda (D-Forest Park) today announced a town hall meeting on Thursday, August 15th at 6:00 p.m. at People Working Cooperatively to discuss the state budget, bipartisan priorities and a number of recent Democratic-led wins for working people and families in Hamilton County.
“This is a great opportunity for members of the community to share their thoughts and concerns with us,” said Rep. Denson. “I’m looking forward to getting feedback from my constituents and putting it to work in Columbus.”
State Rep. Sedrick Denson (D-Cincinnati) today issued a statement in opposition to House Bill (HB) 6, a Republican-sponsored bill to bail out Ohio’s nuclear power plants and subsidize two additional coal-fired power plants that service the state. The bill also guts Ohio’s renewable and energy efficiency standards, which opponents say will hurt job growth in emerging clean energy industries.
“This is truly disappointing,” said Denson. “Unfortunately, this HB 6 isn’t about jobs or clean energy like proponents would like us to believe. This bill is about bending to the will of a corporation by giving them a bag full of hard working Ohioans’ money.”
House Democratic lawmakers from across Ohio today sent a letter to Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose seeking information from his office about the impact of moving the 2020 presidential primary from March 10 to March 17, St. Patrick’s Day. See the letter below.
State Rep. Sedrick Denson (D- Cincinnati) issued a statement today following the Supreme Court’s decision in the North Carolina and Maryland partisan gerrymandering cases.
“The decision handed down by the United States Supreme Court was a disappointing one. Regardless, it is now the responsibility of my general assembly colleagues and I to ensure that every single Ohioan’s vote counts equally. It’s our duty to guarantee that our redistricting process is fair, transparent, and most importantly, accurate. I remain committed to this endeavor and I look forward to working to provide an unbiased system to my constituents.”
House Democratic lawmakers today largely voted against House Bill (HB) 6, legislation to bail out several energy corporations and all but eliminate energy efficiency and renewable energy standards in Ohio.
House Democratic lawmakers today unveiled the Clean Energy Jobs Act, their proposal to protect existing jobs, grow new ones and invest in Ohio’s clean energy future. The announcement follows the latest changes to House Bill (HB) 6, which Republican lawmakers amended to bail out more corporations and all but eliminate energy efficiency and renewable energy standards in Ohio. The bill passed out of committee Thursday.
Democratic members of the House Energy and Natural Resources Committee today released a joint statement after Republicans running the committee banned questions from the elected officials in a failed effort to promote partisan legislation – House Bill 6 – designed to bailout one energy company in the state at expense to taxpayers.
