Tim Brown sponsors House Bill 2

University alumnus Tim Brown, a Republican in Ohio’s state legislature, who was elected in November of 2012, recently sponsored his first bill as Wood County’s District 3 representative.

Brown helped sponsor House Bill 2, which would require citizens requesting unemployment compensation to register with a state workforce assistance website.

Claimants would have to register with the OhioMeansJobs’ website, according to the bill. OhioMeansJobs helps unemployed Ohioans find new work, trains them for future jobs and assists in writing resumes, Brown said.

The bill would also require that eight weeks after registering for the program, participants would meet with the service directly to determine why “[OhioMeansJobs] is not working for the individual,” Brown said.

“We want to play a more proactive role in getting people back to work,” he said.
