Reps. Raúl M. Grijalva and Keith Ellison, Co-Chairs of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC), today released the following statement after the state of Ohio voted to repeal SB5:

“The people of Ohio have spoken loudly: they will not stand by while Republican politicians take away the rights of hard-working Americans. Tonight’s vote in Ohio is a victory for America’s working families and a warning to politicians who would take away their rights. Cutting middle-class jobs to pay for massive tax giveaways for millionaires and corporations is unacceptable. And, yes, working Americans will fight back when their rights are trampled on."

“We congratulate Ohio voters for fighting back and showing the rest of us the way. Thanks to them, teachers, nurses and firefighters will have a voice at work as they continue to serve their communities and their country.”
