In The News!

Senator LaRose’s Senate Bill 135, which will provide nearly $115 million to counties to help upgrade aging voting machines, passed the Ohio House Finance committee last week. Read more about the need for the funding in the Dayton Daily News.

Additionally, Senators Frank LaRose and Jay Hottinger introduced legislation this month to expand survivor benefits for the families of first responders who are killed in the line of duty. Ohio’s law enforcement, firefighters and public safety professionals risk their lives to selflessly protect our families, and with this bill, we will ensure we better protect their families. The bill had its first hearing in the State Senate last week.
