Urge Ohio Senate Judiciary Committee to Pass Senate Bill 37!

Why is this important?

๐Ÿ”‘ Restoring the Right to Work: By eliminating unnecessary license suspensions, Senate Bill 37 empowers thousands of Ohio residents to contribute positively to the economy while addressing their underlying debt. It’s a win-win for individuals and the state’s economic prosperity!

๐Ÿ“ˆ Driving License Requirements in Ohio: Did you know Ohio employers are 25% more likely to require a driverโ€™s license than the national average? With driving becoming increasingly essential for work, it’s crucial to address the barriers faced by those with suspended licenses.

๐Ÿšฆ Debt-Related License Suspensions: Shockingly, over 1.7 million Ohio drivers have had their licenses suspended due to unpaid debt, representing over 60% of all suspensions! These suspensions, often for reasons unrelated to dangerous driving, prevent individuals from accessing employment opportunities and meeting essential needs.

Improvements we're advocating for:

๐Ÿš—ย Limited Driving Privileges for Child Support: Those facing suspension for child support should have the option for limited driving privileges to maintain employment. Denying this right not only impacts their ability to support themselves but also their families. Let’s ensure no one loses their means of livelihood due to bureaucratic hurdles!

๐Ÿšซย Eliminating Failure to Appear Suspensions: Instead of suspensions, let’s implement alternative measures like vehicle registration or license renewal blocks. It’s time to move away from punitive measures that hinder individuals’ ability to fulfill their responsibilities.

โœŠ Take Action NOW: Let your voice be heard! Contact your local representatives and urge them to support Senate Bill 37. Together, we can enact meaningful change and ensure that all Ohioans have the opportunity to thrive.

Thank you for being a champion for change!
