Ohio Lawmakers Conclude Session

In a mad dash, the Ohio House and Senate this week convened their final voting sessions of the 133rd General Assembly. Both chambers have adjourned until January when the 134th General Assembly will be sworn in.

In a whirlwind of activity affecting dozens of bills, Ohio manufacturers saw wins and losses. Most notably, the legislature failed to repeal Ohio’s scandal-tainted energy law, House Bill 6, while the OMA and its allies were successful in preventing the expansion of employer-funded workers’ comp coverage for PTSD mental injury claims (see separate stories). 12/23/2020
