The Ohio Legislature entered the "Lame Duck" session in full force last week, taking actions on multiple bills that NASW Ohio is following.

  • House Bill 228 aka "Stand Your Ground" bill weakens multiple gun safety laws and has been shown in other states to put people of color disproportionately at risk.
  • House Bill 258 aka the "Heartbeat Bill" is a six-week abortion ban that seriously limits a pregnant person's options before they may even know they are pregnant.
We ask you to call your state Senator today and urge them to vote NO on each of these harmful bills. Find your Senator here.

House Bill 523 adapts mandated reporting laws to include cross reporting animal abuse and some other changes. NASW Ohio is in support of HB 523.
