Protecting Ohio's Seniors from
Fraud and Exploitation
Neighbor,
 
As a community banker of over 40 years, I witnessed countless attempts by strangers, supposed friends and even family to financially exploit Ohio's seniors. I have seen the impact of these crimes first-hand and the results are often devastating. That is why I sponsored legislation to help protect our most vulnerable seniors from financial fraud and exploitation. I am proud to share with you that this legislation recently passed unanimously out of committee in the Senatea big step towards helping Ohio's seniors!
 
 
Preserving the Dignity of Life
A staunch pro-life advocate, I believe we have a moral responsibility to respect and uphold the dignity of all human life. Recently, I joined my Senate colleagues in supporting legislation that will establish clear guidelines regarding the disposal of aborted fetal remainsending the cruel practice of disposing of them via public landfills.

Beginning with the 2018 tax year, Ohio businesses will have a new option to use a centralized filing system where they will only need to file one municipal net profit tax return through the Ohio Business Gateway. Those interested in opting-into this system must make an election before March 1, 2018.
 
 
Common Sense Congressional Districting Reforms 
The Senate recently passed a common sense plan to improve the outdated process for drawing Ohio's congressional districts. The proposal will make necessary updates that will keep communities together while preserving and protecting the civil rights of voters. While we believe these reforms are thoughtful and in the best interest of Ohio, you will ultimately have the chance to decide when you cast your ballot on May 8th.
