What’s Next in the Senate Bill Five Campaign
This week, WOSU Public Media’s “Columbus on the Record” panelists discuss what’s next in the Senate Bill Five campaign. Governor Kasich called for a meeting with union leaders and sat with Republican House Speaker William G. Batchelder and Senate President Thomas Niehaus across from a table with six placards in front of empty chairs. The governor alternated between criticizing the unions for not negotiating and saying he still thinks there is time to work out a deal.
