Ohio Senators Announce Bill Calling for Immediate End to Shutdown

The GOP lawmakers are tired of COVID-19 safety restrictions

State Senators Kristina Roegner (R-Hudson) and Rob McColley (R-Napoleon) announced legislation Wednesday that would “immediately end the shutdown of the state.” Senate Bill 311 includes language similar to Senate Bill 1.

That bill was passed last week by the Ohio House of Representatives, restricting the authority of Ohio Department of Health Director Dr. Amy Acton.

According to Senate Bill 1, any orders issued by her would expire after 14 days unless approved for an extension from a bi-partisan committee, which is made up of members from the House and Senate. The committee would then decide how long it would last.
