Norwalk businessman Dick Stein has joined the Ohio House of Representatives after a successful 2016 campaign. He is currently in his third term.
“As the son of a dairy farmer in a rural county I understand the rural needs of both Huron and Lorain counties,” Stein said.
“My many years as a small businessman have also given me an excellent understanding of how government can affect business, both positively and negatively,” he added.
A few of Representative Stein’s accomplishments include:
- He championed the passage of HB 168 in his first term, creating a grant program to help the 27 townships he represents in maintaining the not for profit cemeteries under their care.
- Supported revising the CAUV tax to be more fair to Ohio agricultural taxpayers.
- Worked with the private sector to lower energy costs for working families and businesses.
- Supported local government and school boards control of curricula instead of control by federal and state bureaucrats, including the elimination of the Common Core program and more recently the legislation to stop the teaching of “Critical Race Theory”
- Has supported legislation for better healthcare transparency – Ohio currently ranks near the bottom in legislation to provide healthcare transparency. Many people are surprised to learn that in healthcare, there is no correlation between cost and quality. Prices for medical services can vary greatly, even for the same procedure in the same area, within the same network. Quality and outcomes can vary just as greatly with no relationship to price. The only way to know whether you’re getting good care at a reasonable price is to see the pricing and outcome data.
Representative Stein is a graduate of Norwalk St. Paul High School. Stein and his wife, Patty, are the parents of two married sons and10 grandchildren.
