Gross, Horn Seeks to Represent Newly Elected 45th Ohio Congressional District
And those are his top three priorities if elected.
“I’ll reach out across the aisle with common sense solutions that will appeal to most Ohioans,” Horn said. Senator) How we worked with Rob Portman to pass infrastructure and CHIPS bills.”
There are national issues that both Republicans and Democrats have failed to address, but “they’re not what people tell me they matter. They’re great public schools, affordable health care, and It is a policy that supports working people.”
For Gross, her top three priorities are reducing the burden on the state. This includes dealing with rising inflation, keeping Ohio safe and alive, parental rights in education and Ed Her Choice.
Gross said he has several Democrat colleagues who are pursuing legislation to improve their districts and states.
Political divisions are becoming the norm, and she said, “I hope we can spend more time together and get to know each other as people, not just on opposite sides of the legislative sphere.”
One change she hopes to make in the State Capitol is the legislative process. She said that when the bill goes to the House of Representatives, it will need a vote to pass.
“I would like to have more discussions on the floor with unknown results,” she said. “Even if it looks like the bill won’t be voted on, I want it to be discussed and voted on.”
Gross and Horn disagree on a number of issues, including how states should deal with another public health crisis, as the country has seen with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Horn said he disagreed with many of Ohio Governor Mike DeWine’s policies, but he followed science and “clearly saved thousands of lives and the economy didn’t collapse.” I’m so glad you kept my 97 year old parents safe and I will make sacrifices for them in the future.”
We didn’t have an economic collapse, but we struggled. According to Policy Matters Ohio, the pandemic has put more than 1 million Ohioans out of work as of September 2021. By July, Ohio had recovered 85% of the jobs lost to the pandemic, the think tank reports.
Gross said states must follow the instructions of Senate Bill 22 and House Bill 215. It’s a pair of bills enacted in his 2021 that limit or overrule health orders issued by the Ohio Department of Health regarding health emergencies such as pandemics and contagious diseases.
“It makes sense to allow Ohioans to make individual choices about safety, and to allow businesses to make those same individual choices,” Gross said.
There was House Bill 248 related to the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s a bill paused by Ohio House leaders after thousands of people on both sides of the aisle voiced their opinions.
A nurse practitioner, Gross supports the bill she introduced and is working on its legislative initiative, which she leads from Ohioans across the state.
“I have learned that there is power when people stand up for their rights and voice their support for legislation,” she said.
The bill never left the House Health Committee, but nearly 1,200 supporters backed the bill and nearly 400 opposed the bill banning compulsory vaccinations. were included both in favor of and against.
Horn, meanwhile, said he would never introduce what he called “anti-vaccine laws”, but would rather adopt policies based on medical science.
