My bipartisan #SecondChance  Act has changed thousands of lives in #Ohio , & my bipartisan #JOBSAct  will complement it by ensuring that individuals in programs like those run by ForeverDads have the opportunity to learn the skills necessary for the jobs available today.

One of the issues I’m working on is helping more Americans get the skills they need to get the in-demand #jobs  available today. My #JOBSAct  will improve skills training & help our economy continue to grow.

Proud that the Senate just passed legislation to award the Congressional Gold Medal to the famed WWII unit, Merrill’s Marauders. The members of this volunteer unit, including 108 soldiers from #Ohio , are true American heroes who fought valiantly in Burma.

Strong #jobs  report this month! 266,000 #jobs  added in November, solid wage growth & unemployment is the lowest it’s been in 50 years. We’ve got more work to do, but this is good news for #Ohio  & for our nation!

I enjoyed my visit at Fairfield Career Center@ECFTS ) & the productive discussion with the school’s leadership team as well as with local business leaders about how best to ensure Ohioans get the skills training they need to succeed in the #jobs  available today. #JOBSAct 

Across #Ohio , I hear from school & business leaders about their support for my bipartisan #JOBSAct . The JOBS Act will help ensure that skills training is more accessible and affordable so that all #Ohioansans  have the ability to fulfill their God-given potential.

ForeverDads is an incredible organization that encourages, educates, and helps equip men to develop positive relationships with their children, family, and community.

It was an honor to have the opportunity to participate in Save A Warrior’s cohort graduation ceremony at Warrior Village today. The veterans I spoke to showed great courage in banding together as a cohort to support one another in their recovery.


. has laid out a constructive new proposal that contains the basis for a bipartisan agreement. It includes many of the same ideas I have been discussing in bipartisan talks over the past few weeks

The tragedy in Charlottesville this afternoon was domestic terrorism. We must all condemn hatred and white nationalism.

I am calling on @StateDept  to use funding that Congress has authorized to counter Russian propaganda & disinfo:

Today I saw firsthand the critical and innovative research and ground tests for the international space community being done right here in #Ohio  at NASA’s facilities in #Cleveland  and #Sandusky .

I will continue to work in Washington to ensure that @NASAglenn  has the support it needs to carry out it’s vital missions for @NASA  and to ensure stability for the more than 3,200 #Ohioans  who work there.

I’m grateful for @realDonaldTrump  & @FLOTUS’s visit to #Dayton  today to show their support for #Ohio  after the tragic shootings this weekend. #Ohio  is hurting, but our communities will continue to lift each other up as we heal.

Thanks to @realDonaldTrump  and @FLOTUS  for coming to #Dayton  today to comfort those who were injured or lost loved ones and thank those who responded so compassionately and effectively to the tragedy. Appreciated your visit.

Last month, as chair of #PSI , I released a bipartisan report documenting how Americans taxpayers have been unwittingly funding the rise of China’s economy & military through China’s talent recruitment plans. It has to stop.

Today I led bipartisan letter with my Senate colleagues to @USTradeRep  outlining our concerns about #China ’s efforts to develop and deploy its Corporate Social Credit System.
