Today, Ohio State Senators Kris Jordan (R-19) and Cecil Thomas (D-9) were joined by FreedomWorks President and CEO Adam Brandon and U.S. Justice Action Network Executive Director Holly Harris to push for passage of H.B. 347, a bill to reform Ohio’s civil asset forfeiture laws. On the call, Brandon announced that Ohioans have inundated state legislators with nearly 52,000 messages of support.

FreedomWorks has selected H.R. 5360, the Welfare Reform and Upward Mobility Act, as our bill of the month for October 2016. Introduced by Rep.
