COLUMBUS – State Rep. Tom Young (R-Washington Twp.) today announced the Ohio House has approved six bills addressing a variety of issues, including measures to provide testing relief to Ohio’s schools, improve health outcomes, and support Ohio’s business climate.
Promoting organ donation: House Bill 21 raises awareness for organ donation by increasing voluntary donation dollars amounts at the BMV and asking vehicle registrant applicants if they would like to be donors.
Protecting military children: House Bill 92 requires children services to report child abuse or neglect in military families to the appropriate military authorities in order to provide better coordination in addressing these cases.
Fixing Ohio’s banking and credit laws: House Bill 133 reforms and modernizes Ohio’s banking and credit laws and allows businesses to seek property tax adjustment due to COVID-19.
Improving public access to physical therapy services: Senate Bill 5 would enter Ohio into the Physical Therapy Licensure Compact to facilitate the interstate practice of physical therapy
Removing barriers to occupational therapy services: Senate Bill 7 would enter Ohio into the Occupational Therapy Licensure Compact, authorizing licensed occupational therapists to practice in other compact states.
Providing flexibility to Ohio’s teachers and students: The House concurred on Senate amendments to House Bill 67, which provides an extended window for end of year testing, flexibility for graduation requirements for high school juniors and seniors, and more.
“Each of these bills passed the House with near-unanimous, bipartisan support,” said Young. “I’m proud to vote yes on legislation that will ultimately make Ohio a better place to live, work, and raise a family.”
