Ohio Senate likely to repeal HB 6 before Election Day

COLUMBUS -- "'The Senate will be meeting in September, and we are likely to add additional session dates to the schedule. One of the issues we will be considering is a potential repeal of HB 6,' confirmed Senate President Larry Obhof, R-Medina.

Holding a session in September would show voters that the GOP-dominated legislature is taking action — just before early voting begins in early October — on the legislation at the heart of what federal authorities say is a $60 million racketeering scheme to return former House Speaker Larry Householder to power and to bail out Ohio’s two nuclear power plants.

It is unclear whether the House will take similar action."
