Founding of America Documents Bill Passes Ohio Senate

The Ohio Christian Alliance celebrates the passage of S.B. 165 in the Ohio Senate today.  This legislation entitled “The Founding of America Documents Bill” will strengthen the language currently in the Ohio Revised Code pertaining to the American History and Government curriculum to include The Declaration of Independence, The Northwest Ordinance, The Constitution of the United States with emphasis on The Bill of Rights, The Ohio Constitution, the Federalist and Anti-Federalist Papers. 

OCA President Chris Long stated, “This legislation is overdue. It was that great founding patriot, John Adams, who warned his generation that, ‘A Constitution of Government once changed from freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever.’"

“It was Thomas Jefferson who stated, ‘If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.’ This legislation will highlight those documents of freedom and enumerated rights so that the next generation can carry the torch of liberty that these documents represent.   OCA commends State Senator Tim Grendell and State Senator Larry Obhof for sponsoring this important legislation.”

Senator Grendell stated, “It is important that high school students learn and understand United States History and the government of both the United States and the State of Ohio.  We can’t expect children to understand and defend the rights and freedoms our Founding Fathers intended for us – rights and freedoms many Americans died for – if they don’t have an understanding of how these documents led to the system of government we have today.” 

OCA looks forward to the passage of The Founding of America Documents Bill to benefit the education of future generations of young Ohioans.
