Pro Senate Bill 5 Campaign Faces Uphill Battle

This week, WOSU Public Media’s “Columbus on the Record” panelists discuss how the GOP-backed Building a Better Ohio coalition has a lot of work to do to beat the efforts of the anti-SB5 campaign, headed by We Are Ohio, which collected 1.3 million signatures to repeal the collective bargaining reform.

Other topics: Secretary of State Jon Husted dropped a proposal to block absentee voting by people using ballot applications sent at taxpayer expense in Cuyahoga County; Republican hopes to unseat liberal Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown are riding on Josh Mandel; Mayor Coleman backs Columbus Police in latest shooting incident, but questions of race persist; and a Democratic state lawmaker is drafting legislation that would require drug and alcohol testing of statewide elected officials
