Republicans in the Ohio House of Representatives this week introduced their first legislation. Here is a list of bills.
House Speaker Bill Batchelder explained that this first set of bills and resolutions does not necessarily reflect the caucus’ top priorities. House Bill 1 was introduced as a place-saver for language under development to transform the existing Ohio Department of Development into the public-private partnership called “JobsOhio.”
The Ohio Senate Republican caucus will introduce legislation as it fine-tunes its priorities.
Also this week, House Speaker Batchelder and Senate President Niehaus published the legislative schedule for the first half of 2011.
