Reineke bill aims to smooth e-school policies

State Rep. Bill Reineke has teamed with another legislator to introduce a bill this week that would address shortcomings in Ohio’s laws governing e-schools, but he has not agreed to return funding he received from an e-school founder.

According to a release, the legislation would increase transparency and establish consistent regulations for education providers across the state.

In 2016, e-schools served about 180,000 students in the U.S., providing a non-traditional education option for families. The legislation, House Bill 707, would maintain this option, while making sure the schools are regulated properly to provide quality education to students.

In-Demand Jobs Week Spurs Workforce Development

One of the top issues our state faces is the disconnect between education and career readiness, demonstrating the importance of workforce development. Currently, there exists a gap between working-age adults and the degrees and skills necessary to be successful in the current and future labor market. My goal in the legislature is to reduce that gap, thereby filling open jobs and helping Ohioans obtain fulfilling careers.

Governor Signs Bill Allowing Multi-Jurisdictional Seneca County Drug Court

COLUMBUS—State Representative Bill Reineke (R-Tiffin) today announced that the governor has signed into law House Bill 354, a bill that Reineke sponsored to enhance efficiency in the way Seneca County courts address low-level drug offenses.

The new law establishes a pilot program that consolidates certain drug court proceedings for the Tiffin-Fostoria Municipal Court and the Seneca County Court of Common Pleas, both of which are now located in the same building, the new Seneca County Joint Justice Center. Because Seneca County is predominantly rural, both courts see the same defendants and deal with the same issues, regardless of jurisdiction.
