National surveys show consumers’ mood is brightening, and it’s not just holiday cheer. The more positive outlook has a lot to do with the steep drop in gasoline prices since last summer. 2015 holds the promise of more price relief not only at the gas pump but also at grocery stores.
Opponents Of Election Changes Get Green Light For Repeal Effort
Opponents of Ohioâ€™s recent election changes have been cleared to move forward with their effort to ask voters if the law should stay on the books.
The law shortens the state’s early voting period, does away with the week when people can register to vote and cast a ballot on the same day, and bans in-person early voting on Sundays.
Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted on Thursday ruled the Fair Elections Ohio group has the 1,000 valid signatures needed to continue with its effort. Attorney General Mike DeWine has also approved the group’s summary language of the legislation, which will be used on future petitions.
