    Our national security depends on constant innovation, including from the defense industry. That’s why we worked to create a national network of defense innovation hubs. Republican Rep. Michael Turner and I fought to make sure Ohio was included.
  • Cutting taxes for Ohio teachers
    I introduced the Educators Expense Deduction Modernization Act to quadruple the amount that K-through-12 educators can deduct from their taxes for classroom expenses. It would raise the base amount teachers can deduct from $250 to $1,000.
  • Supporting law enforcement
    One of my most important jobs is getting resources to Ohio, that includes funding for law enforcement. I’ll use any tool available to make sure Ohio gets our fair share, or more, of federal resources.
  • Ensuring first responders get Social Security
    Laws dating back to the 1970s and 1980s prevent almost 250,000 Ohioans from receiving the Social Security benefits they have earned through their service.

    A few weeks ago in the Senate, we passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) with overwhelming bipartisan support – we pass an updated version of this legislation every year to get resources to our military and to protect our national security.
  • Cracking down on Wall Street-backed investors driving up home prices
    In too many communities in Ohio, big outside investors funded by Wall Street are buying up homes that could have gone to first-time homebuyers. It’s driving up prices and it’s making it even harder for Ohioans to buy a house – especially for young families buying their first home.

  • Expanding child care in rural communities
    Parents should not have to choose between going to work to provide for their families and making sure their children are well cared for. Child care is far too expensive and too hard to find – particularly in rural communities, where parents face unique challenges and have unique needs when it comes to caring for their children. 
  • Working to close one of trade enforcement’s loopholes
    Unfair foreign competition is a massive problem for Ohio companies, particularly from countries like China, where the government much of the economy. And our trade laws haven’t kept up with all the ways that foreign competition can cheat and get around the rules.
