COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio lawmakers plan to address the disrupted school year and the postponed primary election when they return to Columbus this week. Republican Gov. Mike DeWine says much of what the legislature will address involves flexibility in meeting the daily challenges of the coronavirus pandemic. DeWine also says mandatory testing in schools shouldn't happen this year. House and Senate leaders agree. The GOP-controlled House and Senate are both scheduled to meet Wednesday and Thursday. Lawmakers would have to suspend rules to pass legislation on an emergency basis without the normal schedule of committee hearings.
