Sen. Brown rep hears local views on national subjects

National debt, gun control and too much regulatory control were a few of the issues broached during a roundtable discussion with Sen. Sherrod Brown’s liaison, Ben Famous at the Logan County Area Chamber of Commerce’s Legislative Committee breakfast meeting today.

As a liaison, Mr. Famous’ job is to visit with leaders throughout the state, hear their concerns and take those comments back to the senator and his staff.

Sen. Brown is starting his second term in the U.S. Senate. He is on committees that focus on agriculture, banking and financial institutions, veterans affairs and ethics.

But his appointment this year to the Finance Committee will put him in the middle of legislative work on taxation, trade, entitlement programs, health care and spending, Mr. Famous noted.

“Both he and Sen. (Rob) Portman are on the committee,” he said, “and that’s a great opportunity for the state of Ohio.

“We’re going to try to work together with Sen. Portman where we can on issues important to the state.”
