Accomplishments

Brigid Kelly went to the Ohio Statehouse to deliver on the promises she made to the community. As our State Representative, she continues to lead the charge in the fight for a stronger state.

REINVEST IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS

Rep. Kelly continues to fight for real investment in our public schools. She sponsored legislation to support families by providing a sales tax holiday for clothing and school supplies. She also led the charge to require Ohio’s Governor to complete on-site work experience in schools to make sure our state’s officials truly understand what our teachers and children need.

PROTECT OHIO WORKERS

Rep. Kelly kept her promise to Ohio’s workers and to hold corporations accountable. She sponsored bills that would:

  • Increase the state minimum wage
  • Expand the overtime pay law
  • Require employers to report the number of employees receiving public assistance
  • Provide earnings and deductions statements to employees
  • Recognize Workers Memorial Day in Ohio

FIGHT FOR WOMEN’S EQUALITY

Rep. Kelly has always prioritized and fought for paid leave, equal pay and protecting women’s reproductive choices. In her first term she sponsored legislation to create a Gender Pay Disparity Task Force and exempt feminine hygiene products from sales tax.

PROTECT STUDENTS

Making college more affordable and protecting our students from predatory lending is critical to having an educated workforce in Ohio. As one step to create a stronger workforce, Rep. Kelly sponsored a bill to license student loan servicers to provide greater consumer protection for students borrowing for college.
