Statement from Ohio Republican Party Chairman on Ohio’s Lifting of COVID-19 Restrictions

COLUMBUS—Chairman Bob Paduchik issued the following statement on Governor DeWine’s announcement on the lifting of COVID-19 health orders:

“Governor DeWine’s full lifting of COVID-19 health orders is welcome news.

“While the Biden-Harris Administration and Democrat governors have imposed draconian, nonsensical regulations, barred children from school, and implemented policies that disincentivize work and squander taxpayer dollars, Ohio, under Governor DeWine’s leadership, rose to the challenge of our time.

“Smart, prudent economic policy is incentivizing work and fueling Ohio’s economic rally—outpacing most of the country. Ohioans are back to work. Children are back in the classroom. Opportunity is abundant again in the great state of Ohio.”
