Ohio Legislators want to minimize/ strip Dr Acton's Order Power

Ohio Nurses Association support Dr Acton...

IMPORTANT: Show #NursesStandwithActon by messaging legislators now!

Certain Ohio lawmakers are fast-tracking a bill that would strip power from Dr. Acton. Instead of allowing medical experts drive decisions, some legislators would rather have the power, with some stating the fear of overburdening the healthcare system was blown out of proportion.

Show this is unacceptable and message legislators. Dr. Acton's work to protect Ohioans has been nothing short of incredible.

In remarks to FOX19 NOW, Householder also said last week: "House Republicans believe it’s not government’s role to manage people’s lives. What you can wear, where you can go, when you can go there or if you can leave your home are decisions people make for a child or pet.

“House Republicans believe a vast majority of Ohioans understand their own circumstances and can make their own decisions without government mandates and orders. Now that we know there will be no surge, then if a citizen is worried about getting sick, don’t go out. It’s that simple.”
Householder is scheduled to address the media Wednesday after the session ends.
FOX19 NOW is seeking comment from DeWine and Acton.
We are told the amendment proposed Wednesday is separate than a bill expected from State Rep. John Becker, R-Union. Becker’s “Need Ohio Working Now” bill was not formally introduced as of early Wednesday morning.

GOP lawmakers backing the amendment have support from 44 of the 60 Republicans in the House.
