From the Ohio Statehouse -Senator Jay Hottinger and State Representative Scott Ryan

Posted on: January 29th, 2018 by midnet.media

 

State Senator Jay Hottinger – As Licking County’s State Senator and a lifelong resident of the county, I go to the Statehouse focused on making our community a better place to live and raise a family. To make Licking County the best place to call home, I support legislation and seek partnerships that incentivize job creation and investment here. In 2017, I sought to create more jobs for our hard-working residents by partnering with JobsOhio to secure Facebook’s investment in our county, I worked with community leaders to tackle important local issues such as keeping Newark Digital Academy open to serve our county’s most at-risk students, and I doubled the tax deduction available to all Ohioans who are saving for a loved one’s college education to $4,000 per year. Also, I am proud that in 2017 for the 25th time in my 26 years of service to the people of Licking County, I had perfect attendance and did not miss any of the 176 votes cast in the Ohio Senate. My work at the Statehouse is not complete though. In 2018, as I run for re-election, I am focused on slowing the pipeline of addiction that has led our state into an opioid epidemic. To prevent teen abuse of opioids, I have introduced legislation that would reduce the number of opioids that teens and others receive following a surgery by aligning Ohio’s prescribing guidelines for acute pain with the CDC’s guidelines. Also, following the tragic events in Kirkersville, I have focused on giving victims of violence better protections by introducing legislation that will increase the penalty for the repeat violation of a protection order. After speaking with Prosecutor Bill Hayes, I am confident the stiffer penalties in my bill will give police officers and prosecutors the ability to put more violent offenders in prison and away from their victims.

Representative Scott Ryan 2017 was a very busy year at the Statehouse. We began with the biennial state budget and I am happy to report that as Vice Chair of the Finance Committee and one of three house members on the Conference Committee, Licking County perspectives certainly had a prominent seat at the table throughout the process. This budget kept the growth of the general revenue fund under the rate of inflation for the first time in many years. While this General Assembly was charged with eliminating over one billion dollars from the executive proposed version, we were still able to focus $176 million new dollars toward the opiate/mental health challenges facing our state as well as significant additional funding for K-12 education.  Space will not permit a detailed review, but I have sponsored several bills pertaining to various topics including:  local government road funding, reducing bureaucracy in times of a declared disaster, scope of practice in behavioral health, and reducing local government cost by allowing for current technology to replace many certified mail requirements. I believe all of these initiatives stand a strong chance of reaching the Governor, and hopefully receiving his signature.  Looking forward to 2018, I can share that I am actively involved in several discussions and work groups that could have exciting positive ramifications for Licking County and the State of Ohio. I am well positioned to give your opinions a voice in your state government. Current formal assignments include: Vice Chair of the Finance Committee, member of the Controlling Board, Joint Medicaid Oversight Committee, Speakers Task Force on the Opiate Epidemic, Rules and Reference Committee, Ways and Means Committee, and State and Local Government Committee.   As always, please reach out to me with your opinions and areas of concern.

In just about a week, voting will start!!! Do you know who the local Republican candidates are on the ballot? This year we have many local candidates up for election. Please remember to vote and please do some research – look at the Republican endorsed candidates and for the other “non-partisan” races, make sure you know who are the republican candidates. Please make sure your family, friends and co-workers know how important local elections are to our communities. Local elected officials are the backbones of a community – the foundation of a community. Thank you.
