It’s been over a week since the Ohio House Republican Caucus failed to come up with enough votes to name a new speaker to take over for the rest of this year. House leaders say they hope to do that Wednesday. And pressure is mounting for majority lawmakers to pick a leader soon.

Thee Ohio House is scheduled to meet Tuesday, but questions remain over who will lead that session and two others that are scheduled -- and whether they will still happen at all.

Last week’s House session was abruptly canceled after the Republican House Caucus failed to reach consensus on a choice to replace Cliff Rosenberger, who resigned in April amid an FBI inquiry that involved him.

There is no official action scheduled in the Ohio House today. Over the Memorial Day weekend there was talk, but little change in the saga over who will be the House speaker until the end of the year. The acting speaker says he’s willing to stay on, but the representative with the most votes says no deal.

Speaker Pro Tem Kirk Schuring of Stark County confirms he’s talked to his fellow Republicans about keeping that post but changing House rules so voting sessions can continue.
