She had a brief meeting with State Representatives Carruther, Hall, and Gross along with the Butler County Ohio Fair Board. She discussed the positive impact Tyler’s law was having to make carnival and fair rides safer. The law was named after Tyler Jarrell who was killed on an amusement ride in 2017. The law increases inspection requirements for amusement rides.
