The top elected Democrat in Ohio wants to take on what he calls “corporate freeloaders” – companies with workers whose wages are so low that they qualify for government assistance. And that’s just part of the lawmaker’s plan.
Ohio’s 34 House Democrats are all up for re-election, along with their 65 Republican colleagues. But they’re not letting their low numbers set them back as they think about what bills they plan to push in the lame duck session this fall and beyond.
A bipartisan bill being considered by Ohio lawmakers would change the way state agencies can operate when it comes to making policies. It’s a bit technical, but lawmakers say it can be important to Ohio business owners.
