...Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy, D-Columbus, who voted for the bill, issued a statement saying the measure would create or save more than 15,000 jobs in central Ohio. She said that "bold action was necessary to end the job loss, help families with the immediate crisis and put a down payment on future prosperity."
