From Columbus, Ohio, State Representative Jean Schmidt (65th District R-Loveland)  issued the following statement regarding door-to-door vaccine efforts being pushed by the Biden Administration. 

“I fully believe that the federal government should not interfere in state affairs, particularly when dealing with COVID-19,” Schmidt says in the statement.  “A door-to-door vaccine program, especially if using a list of people who aren’t vaccinated, is a serious encroachment on States’ Rights and the rights of fellow Ohioans. Our state is handling COVID-19 how we believe is best for Ohioans. I urge Governor DeWine to push back on this program and not allow any state resources to be used on these efforts.”

 

State Representative Jean Schmidt is serving her first term in the Ohio House of Representatives. She represents the 65th house district, which includes northwestern Clermont County.
