CINCINNATI, OH – Today, Senator Rob Portman (R-OH), delivered remarks at the Western Economic Council (WEC) breakfast highlighting his work to enact pro-growth policies, including the tax reform law which is helping the economy grow and create jobs, strengthening Career and Technical Education, and empowering Ohioans to ensure that they have a better tomorrow. WEC is a non-profit that promotes high quality and balanced economic development and redevelopment throughout western Hamilton County. 

“Today, I had the opportunity to speak to small business owners, community leaders and local elected officials about how tax reform has helped our economy and how I am working to promote career and technical education to ensure our employers have a competitive workforce to meet the demands of today’s economy,” said Portman.  “Our economy continues to grow and create jobs but we have more work to do to ensure that all Americans are benefiting. I will continue to work with my colleagues on common-sense solutions to strengthen our economy.” 

Traveling more than 630 miles across Ohio over three days, Portman will see firsthand how his efforts at the federal level are helping Ohio workers, farmers, small businesses, and communities. He will participate in events highlighting how tax reform is helping our economy and how federal funding he helped secure to fight the drug epidemic is being used to save lives. Portman will also visit Ohio military installations to see how funding he helped secure is creating jobs and strengthening our national defense. In addition, he will tour the Transportation Research Center, a world-class testing facility he helped ensure can compete on a level playing field for federal funding for autonomous vehicle research.  Finally, he will visit with farmers in Northwest Ohio to highlight his efforts to help address recent flooding as well as to see how Great Lakes Restoration Initiative funding he fought to preserve is being used to improve and preserve the health of Lake Erie.
