Press Release

Congressman Mike Turner (OH-10) introduced Evan's Law today to require the Department of Defense to implement military residential window safety requirements to protect against unintentional falls by young children.

 

Commander Jason English and his wife Ami, who lost their son Evan in an accidental fall from a window while living in military residential housing, were in the House gallery with their children as Congressman Turner gave an emotional speech asking for his colleagues’ support of this bill.

 

“Sometimes out of loss, a cause arises and the lives of others are saved,” said Congressman Turner during his speech on the House floor.
