Columbus, OH — Today, the Ohio Democratic Party released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives voted to pass the Build Back Better Act, sending the legislation to the U.S. Senate. The legislation is an important investment in working families in Ohio, which will cut costs for hard-working Ohioans and help our state get back on the road to recovery.

“Today’s passage of the Build Back Better Act is an important step forward for working families in Ohio. As we saw last night, Washington Republicans want to stick to their playbook of looking out for Wall Street and special interests, while Democrats are laser-focused on making life more affordable for working Ohioans. The Build Back Better Act will put more money in the pockets of hard-working Ohioans, and we’re looking forward to the Senate passing this much-needed bill,” said Michael Beyer, spokesperson for the Ohio Democratic Party.
