WASHINGTON, D.C. -- On the first day of the 111th Congress, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, announced legislation that would create green jobs in Ohio and expand access to health insurance for small businesses and self-employed individuals. 

"Creating good-paying jobs and expanding health coverage must be top priorities in the new Congress," said Brown. "After holding more than 126 roundtable discussions in all of Ohio's counties, it's clear that job creation and health coverage are critical to the strength of our economy. It's time for policies that put middle class families first."

Brown today introduced two pieces of legislation to grow Ohio's economy: the Green Energy Production Act and the Small Employer Health Insurance Bill.
