Rob Portman said : “I had a great discussion today with the leadership at NAHA about our two year funding extension victory in the final FY 2020 funding measure as well as the deferred maintenance that needs to be addressed throughout the cultural sites,” “NAHA is a public-private partnership that has also generated economic growth in the region. It supports 1,500 jobs and generates $35 million in economic impact from the more than two million visitors per year. NAHA is home to our nation’s aviation history and I am proud of the progress we have made to help ensure that it is preserved and enjoyed by future generations. I will continue working at the federal level to ensure the NAHA has the resources it needs to help the National Park Service address its maintenance needs through my bipartisan Restore Our Parks legislation” External link

This year, I will continue to be an independent voice for Ohio fighting for common-sense solutions to benefit our state. That includes working to pass my bipartisan JOBS Act, which will expand access to Pell Grants so Ohioans can afford shorter-term job training programs so that they have the skills necessary for the jobs available today. I’ll work to pass my FIGHT Fentanyl Act, which will permanently criminalize fentanyl-related substances so that law enforcement can keep these dangerous synthetic opioids out of our communities. We must do more on retirement security, which is why I’ve introduced the Retirement Security & Savings Act. Finally, I’m working to ensure the Senate passes the new U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade agreement, which will expand markets and level the playing field for Ohio workers, farmers, and small business owners.

These hardworking Ohioans rely on the HCTC for affordable health insurance after their pensions were terminated or after they were adversely affected by foreign trade, and I will continue to work with my colleagues and the administration to ensure the stability of health coverage for these individuals and their families.

Portman and Sherrod Brown (D-OH) praised Senate passage of the final FY 2020 funding bill which included a short-term extension of the Health Coverage Tax Credit through the end of 2020. This credit helps subsidize the cost of continued coverage for retirees and other individuals who lost their health care coverage — in addition to their pensions and other benefits — when their employers either entered into bankruptcy or laid off workers due to foreign trade. Earlier this year, Portman and Brown introduced bipartisan legislation that would extend for five years the Health Coverage Tax Credit (HCTC) The HCTC is critically important for many hardworking Ohioans, including as many as 5,000 Delphi salaried retirees in Dayton, the Mahoning Valley, and Sandusky. In addition, a few hundred workers from the Lordstown General Motors plant have applied for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) and would benefit from the HCTC as well. The legislation now heads to the president’s desk for signature. Thousands of retirees in Ohio and their families depend on the Health Coverage Tax Credit, and I’m pleased the funding bill includes an extension of this credit, even if it is only for one year,” “Since I came to the Senate, I’ve fought for multiple extensions of the HCTC, including my bill that was included in the Trade Preferences Extension Act of 2015 the last time the credit was extended. These hardworking Ohioans rely on the HCTC for affordable health insurance after their pensions were terminated or after they were adversely affected by foreign trade, and I will continue to work with my colleagues and the administration to ensure the stability of health coverage for these individuals and their families. While this short-term extension is less than the five years I called for in my legislation with Senator Brown, I’m still pleased that we were able to prevent the expiration of this credit, providing certainty to thousands of Ohioans” External link

We know that the southern border has lots of challenges, one is certainly the drug issue. We know that crystal meth which is the new drug that is causing havoc in our communities in Ohio but also heroin and cocaine comes almost exclusively across that southern border and my question to you is really about what is happening. You see a significant reduction in terms of crossings. I am looking at some data here that compares last month to the month of May as an example, almost a one third reduction in crossings or at least in apprehensions which would indicate crossings. So the number of people coming over has slowed considerably. Still a significant issue but not like it was and yet from all indications we have, the drug flow has not been reduced even though many have linked some of these same traffickers who bring people across as bringing drugs across.

They are getting it to Mexico, often converting it into a pill form and then sending it over and again a huge increase compared to even a few years ago so a new threat on the border. But look I think the demand side is key here. We have done a lot of work on that, we will continue to on prevention and recovery programs, treatment but we have got to do something to deal with the flow too, because this crystal meth I will tell you in the streets of Columbus, Ohio I’m told is less expensive than marijuana and deadly and so we would appreciate any input you have as to how we can do a better job to reduce that supply at a minimum not just reducing the poison coming into our communities but reducing the impact because it will increase the cost” External link

Rob Portman said : "That didn’t even enter into our calculus as far as I know, one way or the other. It certainly didn’t into mine. Because that was something that nobody was even talking about.ȁ#x201d; The letter, also signed by Ohio Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown, came a couple of months after the vice president threatened to cut off a loan guarantee to Ukraine — a move Biden says was motivated by the concern of U.S. officials and others about Ukrainian corruption. • Although Portman confirmed that Trump cited a lack of help from European nations as a reason for holding up aid authorized by Congress for Ukraine, the senator said he never heard that assertion until he spoke to the president personally Sept. 11, when the aid was released. Earlier conversations with Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of Defense Mark T. Esper and other Trump administration officials turned up no reason for the hold-up, said Portman, co-founder and co-chair of the bipartisan Senate Ukraine Caucus. Democrats say Trump delayed the $250 million to pressure Zelenskiy to investigate the Bidens and a discredited conspiracy theory about the 2016 U.S. presidential election involving Ukraine. • Portman said ȁ#x201c;it may have been inappropriateȁ#x201d; that Trump offered the services of U.S. Attorney General William Barr and the president’s personal attorney, Rudolph Giuliani, to help the Ukrainians in the twin probes. • When Portman was asked if the Bidens did anything wrong in Ukraine, he replied: ȁ#x201c;I honestly don’t know. I would not be prepared to say that, that they did anything wrong.ȁ#x201d; Gov. Mike DeWine, the titular head of Trump's re-election campaign in Ohio, would say little about the president Monday other than to note he still supports Trump for re-election. The Republican said the facts are out there for people to judge Trump's call to foreign powers to investigate a political competitor. ȁ#x201c;Certainly wouldn’t have been how I approached it,ȁ#x201d; was all he would say on that topic. Evan Machan, spokesman for the Ohio Republican Party, declined to comment. But Ohio Democratic Chair David Pepper was not reluctant to talk: ȁ#x201c;Rob Portman is finally speaking up after allowing Donald Trump’s smear against Joe Biden and his family to go on for weeks or longer. Last week reporters exposed a letter that Portman and his fellow senators signed back in 2016. Today Portman admits that the letter actually backed up Biden’s account … The idea that he’s already made up his mind that Donald Trump’s conduct — shaking down foreign leaders to do his political bidding — does not rise to the level of impeachment is ludicrous" External link

This year, I will continue to be an independent voice for Ohio fighting for common-sense solutions to benefit our state. That includes working to pass my bipartisan JOBS Act, which will expand access to Pell Grants so Ohioans can afford shorter-term job training programs so that they have the skills necessary for the jobs available today. I’ll work to pass my FIGHT Fentanyl Act, which will permanently criminalize fentanyl-related substances so that law enforcement can keep these dangerous synthetic opioids out of our communities. We must do more on retirement security, which is why I’ve introduced the Retirement Security & Savings Act. Finally, I’m working to ensure the Senate passes the new U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade agreement, which will expand markets and level the playing field for Ohio workers, farmers, and small business owners.

These hardworking Ohioans rely on the HCTC for affordable health insurance after their pensions were terminated or after they were adversely affected by foreign trade, and I will continue to work with my colleagues and the administration to ensure the stability of health coverage for these individuals and their families.

Portman and Sherrod Brown (D-OH) praised Senate passage of the final FY 2020 funding bill which included a short-term extension of the Health Coverage Tax Credit through the end of 2020. This credit helps subsidize the cost of continued coverage for retirees and other individuals who lost their health care coverage — in addition to their pensions and other benefits — when their employers either entered into bankruptcy or laid off workers due to foreign trade. Earlier this year, Portman and Brown introduced bipartisan legislation that would extend for five years the Health Coverage Tax Credit (HCTC) The HCTC is critically important for many hardworking Ohioans, including as many as 5,000 Delphi salaried retirees in Dayton, the Mahoning Valley, and Sandusky. In addition, a few hundred workers from the Lordstown General Motors plant have applied for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) and would benefit from the HCTC as well. The legislation now heads to the president’s desk for signature. Thousands of retirees in Ohio and their families depend on the Health Coverage Tax Credit, and I’m pleased the funding bill includes an extension of this credit, even if it is only for one year,” “Since I came to the Senate, I’ve fought for multiple extensions of the HCTC, including my bill that was included in the Trade Preferences Extension Act of 2015 the last time the credit was extended. These hardworking Ohioans rely on the HCTC for affordable health insurance after their pensions were terminated or after they were adversely affected by foreign trade, and I will continue to work with my colleagues and the administration to ensure the stability of health coverage for these individuals and their families. While this short-term extension is less than the five years I called for in my legislation with Senator Brown, I’m still pleased that we were able to prevent the expiration of this credit, providing certainty to thousands of Ohioans” External link

Rob Portman ( about Columbus Ohio ) : “Let me talk about another issue that is a national security threat for our entire country but for Ohio particularly hard-hit and that is the drug crisis and the epidemic of overdoses and deaths. We know that the southern border has lots of challenges, one is certainly the drug issue. We know that crystal meth which is the new drug that is causing havoc in our communities in Ohio but also heroin and cocaine comes almost exclusively across that southern border and my question to you is really about what is happening. You see a significant reduction in terms of crossings. I am looking at some data here that compares last month to the month of May as an example, almost a one third reduction in crossings or at least in apprehensions which would indicate crossings. So the number of people coming over has slowed considerably. Still a significant issue but not like it was and yet from all indications we have, the drug flow has not been reduced even though many have linked some of these same traffickers who bring people across as bringing drugs across. Can you speak to that and talk about how these drugs are coming over and Under Secretary Glawe if you would like to speak too, that would be helpful to this issue but what more can we do of course on the border but also what is the relationship between people crossing and drugs crossing?” External link

Rob Portman ( about Columbus Ohio ) : “I would love to follow up with you on that and maybe a QFR (question for the record) here on the fentanyl issue. My sense is there is not a lot of production of fentanyl in Mexico but there is processing. They are getting it just as we were getting it through the mail system and still do by the way. They are getting it to Mexico, often converting it into a pill form and then sending it over and again a huge increase compared to even a few years ago so a new threat on the border. But look I think the demand side is key here. We have done a lot of work on that, we will continue to on prevention and recovery programs, treatment but we have got to do something to deal with the flow too, because this crystal meth I will tell you in the streets of Columbus, Ohio I’m told is less expensive than marijuana and deadly and so we would appreciate any input you have as to how we can do a better job to reduce that supply at a minimum not just reducing the poison coming into our communities but reducing the impact because it will increase the cost” External link

Rob Portman said : "That didn’t even enter into our calculus as far as I know, one way or the other. It certainly didn’t into mine. Because that was something that nobody was even talking about.ȁ#x201d; The letter, also signed by Ohio Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown, came a couple of months after the vice president threatened to cut off a loan guarantee to Ukraine — a move Biden says was motivated by the concern of U.S. officials and others about Ukrainian corruption. • Although Portman confirmed that Trump cited a lack of help from European nations as a reason for holding up aid authorized by Congress for Ukraine, the senator said he never heard that assertion until he spoke to the president personally Sept. 11, when the aid was released. Earlier conversations with Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of Defense Mark T. Esper and other Trump administration officials turned up no reason for the hold-up, said Portman, co-founder and co-chair of the bipartisan Senate Ukraine Caucus. Democrats say Trump delayed the $250 million to pressure Zelenskiy to investigate the Bidens and a discredited conspiracy theory about the 2016 U.S. presidential election involving Ukraine. • Portman said ȁ#x201c;it may have been inappropriateȁ#x201d; that Trump offered the services of U.S. Attorney General William Barr and the president’s personal attorney, Rudolph Giuliani, to help the Ukrainians in the twin probes. • When Portman was asked if the Bidens did anything wrong in Ukraine, he replied: ȁ#x201c;I honestly don’t know. I would not be prepared to say that, that they did anything wrong.ȁ#x201d; Gov. Mike DeWine, the titular head of Trump's re-election campaign in Ohio, would say little about the president Monday other than to note he still supports Trump for re-election. The Republican said the facts are out there for people to judge Trump's call to foreign powers to investigate a political competitor. ȁ#x201c;Certainly wouldn’t have been how I approached it,ȁ#x201d; was all he would say on that topic. Evan Machan, spokesman for the Ohio Republican Party, declined to comment. But Ohio Democratic Chair David Pepper was not reluctant to talk: ȁ#x201c;Rob Portman is finally speaking up after allowing Donald Trump’s smear against Joe Biden and his family to go on for weeks or longer. Last week reporters exposed a letter that Portman and his fellow senators signed back in 2016. Today Portman admits that the letter actually backed up Biden’s account … The idea that he’s already made up his mind that Donald Trump’s conduct — shaking down foreign leaders to do his political bidding — does not rise to the level of impeachment is ludicrous" External link
