In The Region:

That Republican plan to scale back union power in collective bargaining for Ohio’s public employees is almost ready to be sent to Governor John Kasich to be signed into law. The Ohio House of Representatives Wednesday afternoon okayed an amended version of the Senate-passed measure.  The Senate passed the amended bill 17-16 Wednesday night in a mirror of their original vote.  Bill Cohen reports on the mostly partisan debate and the final approval.
