COLUMBUS—The Ohio House of Representatives today approved a joint resolution to hold Governor Kasich’s State of the State address in Sandusky.
Following its passage, Speaker of the Ohio House Clifford A. Rosenberger (R-Clarksville) released the following statement:
“Lake Erie is an extremely valuable resource for Ohio, and my great friend and colleague, State Representative Steve Arndt, has been a key advocate for the region’s unique communities along the waterfront.
“Sandusky has a deep connection to Ohio’s history and this trip will present an opportunity for the legislature to reflect upon this legacy. I look forward to joining Rep. Arndt in Sandusky for the 2017 State of the State address when we will learn more about Governor Kasich’s vision for the future of our state.”
The setting of this year’s address will be located within the 89th Ohio House District, represented by Rep. Steve Arndt (R-Port Clinton). Rep. Arndt said:
“Moving the State of the State Address around Ohio is a great way for the people’s representatives to see how our residents are being affected by the policies we pass. At minimal expense to the state, over these two terms with the governor, the General Assembly has been able to see a great cross-section of Ohio, and by moving it this year to the city of Sandusky, we are broadening the opportunities for legislators to experience our great state."
The 2017 State of the State address will be held April 4th at 7 p.m. at the Sandusky State Theatre.
