Obhof Ready For The Attack

Ohio Senate President, Larry Obhof says he has the votes to override Gov., DeWine’s threatened override of a bill…restricting the state health department’s powers during a health emergency. He’s so confident…he tells reporters he’ll hold a vote, if the bill is vetoed as promised by week’s end. The bill would allow the Legislature to adopt resolutions to rescind Ohio Department of Health orders to prevent the spread of contagious diseases. It would also prevent the Health Department from implementing regional or statewide quarantines for people who haven’t been directly exposed or diagnosed with the disease the quarantines are aimed at. Republicans say DeWine has overstepped his authority and usurped the legislative process with a series of executive orders since March, to fight the coronavirus pandemic.
