An Open Letter of Governor Kasich:
We, the Senate Democratic Caucus, write to strongly urge you to veto several pieces of misguided legislation passed during lame duck session. These are not the only bills our caucus opposed; they are the ones we find to be the most inconsistent with the needs of a diverse state with a complex economy. Each of these bills takes an extreme view on a critical issue facing Ohioans and seeks to codify a minority opinion into state law. Several of them are so severe that Republican legislators in both chambers broke from their caucuses to vote in opposition.
