Allen County’s Bob Cupp, Matt Huffman Set to Lead 134th General Assembly

This week marked the opening of Ohio’s 134th General Assembly.

Newly elected Senate President Matt Huffman (R-Lima) was unable to attend his own swearing-in after he was diagnosed with COVID-19. Huffman was elected president 31-0. In comments to Statehouse news media, he said that much of the Senate’s early agenda will address unresolved issues from the 133rd General Assembly, particularly House Bill 6.

Huffman has noted his good relationship with House Speaker Bob Cupp, a fellow Lima resident. The two have known one another for 35 years. Cupp was re-elected 91-0 to the House’s top leadership position.
