Issues

Senate Bill 5

See also: Ohio State Senate Bill 5 (2011) and Ohio Senate Bill 5 Veto Referendum (2011)

Before Senate Bill 5 passed the Ohio State Senate, the bill almost stalled in the Insurance, Commerce and Labor Committee. Needing 7 votes to advance the bill to the floor, Republican leadership realized that only six yes votes were present on the committee. Republican leadership quickly removed Bill Seitz (R-Cincinnati), who opposed the bill, and replaced him with Hite.[1] The change, effected just hours prior to the bill's passage, has been sharply criticized by Democratic leadership. Republicans, however, defended the move, saying that it was necessary to move the process forward.[2]
