In June 2007, Rep. Jordan introduced an amendment aimed at reducing the spending in the Energy-Water appropriations bill. The measure would have cut $1.3 billion of the $31.6 billion bill (H.R. 2641), bringing appropriations back to the fiscal 2007 levels. Democrats, however, successfully voted down the amendment.
Born in 1964 in Urbana, Ohio, Jordan attended Graham High School, where he was a four-time state wrestling champion. He then attended the University of Wisconsin, where he was a two-time NCAA champion. He earned a Master’s degree in Education from the Ohio State University and a Law Degree from Capital University. He and his wife Polly have four children.
Jordan was elected to the Ohio House of Representatives in 1994 and the Ohio State Senate in 2000. While serving in the state legislature, he was named Watchdog of the Treasury (1996, 2000, 2004), Outstanding Legislator Award (2004), Outstanding Freshman Legislator (1996), Friend of the Taxpayer (1997), and Pro-Life Legislator of the Year (1998) by the United Conservatives of Ohio, the "Defender of Life" award from the Ohio Right To Life Society, and the 2001 Leadership in Government Award from the Ohio Roundtable and Freedom Forum. He is also a state member of the U.S. National Commission for UNESCO.
