    The following may be attributed to Representative Steve Stivers (R-OH), in response to the passage of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act: “The impact of this pandemic is unprecedented and as such, requires unprecedented action.

    There are many things that make me proud to be an Ohioan, but our infant mortality rate is not one of them. The Buckeye State has the unfortunate distinction of ranking eighth for highest number of infant deaths. We can, and we must, do more to implement comprehensive policies that will ensure safe deliveries for mothers and a strong start for babies. Unfortunately, the United States is the only developed country whose maternal mortality rates continue to rise; globally, maternal mortality conti... Read more

It is an issue that is not going away. In fact, the obesity rate in 2016 was at an all-time high, acco... Read more

    I am incredibly proud to represent Central Ohio. It is the home to so many incredible innovations that impact not just Ohioans, but all Americans.

    The following may be attributed to Representative Steve Stivers, regarding the vote on H.R. 986: “Make no mistake, Republicans and Democrats are in complete agreement on this: individuals with preexisting conditions must continue to be protected. However, H.R. 986 is not a good-faith effort to protect preexisting conditions; the Administrative guidance in question allows states to seek waivers in order to offer beneficial and innovative health care plans. The guidance clearly states that waivers... Read more
