FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Several Founding Members of The Grassroots Rally Team of Ohio, which has been actively combating ILLEGAL immigration in Ohio (www.grassrootsrallyteam.org) since May 2007, traveled to Columbus on Sept 22 to present the first Award of Appreciation from the Rally Team to Ohio State Representative Courtney Combs (R-Oh 54 district, Butler County) for his sponsoring legislation in Ohio that would protect Ohioans from the adverse effects of ILLEGAL immigration.
Of particular note is Ohio HB 184 which Representative Combs sponsored in May of 2009 and would require all Ohio employers to use the E-Verify system to check the legal status of employees. The bill has not moved out of committee since that time, and will expire at the end of this 128th Ohio General Assembly. Representative Combs told the Rally Team that he would be reintroducing this bill in January 2011.
Representative Combs also told the 6 assembled Rally Team members (Below) that he continues to work on legislation for Ohio which will be comparable to the Arizona SB 1070 bill.
