Commissioner Beatty has had numerous pieces of legislation signed into law, including two measures to combat human trafficking, and another to empower college students to make more informed financial decisions. She also spearheaded legislation officially designating the National Veterans Memorial and Museum located in downtown Columbus, as well as a bill to make the tax deduction permanent for out-of-pocket expenses paid by elementary and secondary teachers for supplies and expenses, and a measure to improve legal services for veterans experiencing or at risk of homelessness. Her advocacy proved critical to enacting a law to help more stroke victims gain access to fast, high-quality telemedicine.
