After seven weeks of not voting, the Ohio House passed 17 bills and agreed with the Senate on 11 more in a single afternoon this week. It was the first session since former Speaker Cliff Rosenberger stepped down in mid April amid an FBI investigation. The House won’t be holding voting sessions next week.
When newly elected Speaker Ryan Smith talked to reporters after the House’s first voting session since mid April, he was all smiles.
“It’s good to be back to work,” he said.
