In January of every odd-numbered year, newly-elected lawmakers come to Columbus to convene in a new General Assembly. During the two-year session that follows, hundreds of bills are introduced, many of which are signed into law. Legislators grapple with issues from funding for schools, public safety, social services and transportation to policies that affect community safety, civil rights and protecting public health and the environment.
We’re now approaching the end of the two-year session that began in January 2017. Before voters head to the polls on November 6, we’ve compiled their most significant votes to measure how effectively they were in supporting an agenda to help working Ohioans.
Check out our Working Families Scorecard for Ohio State Representatives, featuring voting scores for all 98 members of the Ohio House of Representatives (one of the 99 seats is currently vacant), the majority of which are running for reelection. The scores are based on how well their votes aligned with our Winning Economic Agenda as well as other policies we support to empower Ohio’s working families.
