LOGAN, OH – Today, U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) continued his three-day tour across Southern and Southeast Ohio at Hocking College’s Logan branch where he toured the college and participated in a workforce development discussion regarding Career and Technical Education and how his bipartisan JOBS Act legislation will help more Ohioans get the skills and training they need to find in-demand jobs.

Traveling more than 750 miles over three days in Southern and Southeast Ohio, Portman will participate in workforce development roundtables touting his JOBS Act, see an oil production facility, tour several Ohio small businesses which manufacture technology being used to help secure our southern border, and participate in agricultural tours.

“I had a productive discussion today with leadership from Hocking College, as well as with local elected officials about efforts to help students and other workers get the skills they need to succeed in today’s economy,” said Portman. Strengthening Career and Technical Education by passing the JOBS Act will help ensure we make skills training more accessible and affordable. I will continue my work on the federal level to make sure that Washington is an effective partner with local communities in providing Ohioans with the skills training they need to succeed.”

As part of his JOBS Act and Workforce Tour, Portman has visited Warren Fabricating and Machining in Trumbull County, Stark State’s Akron Campus in Summit County, Staub Manufacturing and a graduation ceremony at Sinclair Community College, Rhinestahl Advanced Manufacturing in Warren County, a Department of Justice Reentry Conference and Human Service Chamber roundtable in Franklin County, a Drug Addiction and Workforce Roundtable and a Ohio Labor’s Training Facility in Knox County, an EODA Annual meeting in Holmes County, Venture Products in Wayne County, an Investiture Ceremony at Central Ohio Technical College in Licking County, a Workforce Roundtable hosted by United Way of Cincinnati, a graduation ceremony at Marion Technical College in Marion County, a roundtable at Southern State Community College in Highland County, and a roundtable at The Point in Lawrence County.
