FEBRUARY 15, 2018

No change in status of bills of interest to trial attorneys
Over the past two weeks, the Ohio General Assembly devoted its attention to passage of a constitutional amendment changing how Congressional districts are drawn.  The amendment will appear on the May 8 primary ballot.   

Agreement between the political parties on such a hyper-partisan issue is extraordinary and has not happened in any other state.  A number of lawmakers deserve to be congratulated.  At the risk of offending some, OAJ wants to recognize in particular Senate President Larry Obhof (R-Medina), Senator Matt Huffman (R-Lima) and Senator Vernon Sykes (D-Akron) who were key negotiators.
