Smith Steps Down

A former Ohio House speaker, who lost his bid to retain the post during the current session, is resigning his seat. The decision by state Rep. Ryan Smith was announced in a resignation letter. He faced term limits next year. Smith fought a months-long battle for the House speakership against fellow Republican, Larry Householder. Caucus members had selected Smith last session to fill the leadership position left vacant when Speaker, Cliff Rosenberger resigned, amid an FBI probe.
