State Rep. Mike O’Brien (D-Warren) today issued the following statement after supporting language in House Bill 292 to potentially fast track development of a 1.2 million square foot TJX Homegoods facility in Lordstown, a project that is expected to create 1,000 jobs within several years:

“Today’s vote brings us one step closer to helping create 1000 new jobs in our region. I am thankful to everyone who has worked so hard to bring this needed economic development to our community. I look forward to the positive impact that these new jobs will have on our region’s families and communities, and will continue to work in every way possible at the state level to ensure we remain competitive in meeting the needs of our area’s businesses and workers.”
