Bill to limit DeWine’s health orders passes in Ohio Senate

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Republican lawmakers passed through the Senate the latest legislative action aimed at limiting the emergency powers of Ohio’s governor. A Senate bill introduced last month by lawmakers would establish “checks and balances” on fellow GOP Gov. Mike DeWine’s ability to issue and keep in place executive action during an emergency. The bill would create a committee that would have the power to rescind executive actions taken by a governor or the state health department through a concurrent resolution, which requires a simple majority from the House and Senate. The latest draft was altered Wednesday to reduce the number of lawmakers making the final say on orders in the committee from 10 to 6.
