On Thursday, May 23, 2013, the Boy Scouts of America National Council voted to ease a long-standing ban and allow openly gay boys to be accepted as scouts. But, as WYSO’s Jerry Kenney reports, not all of the controversial issue was settled.
About 1,400 voting members of nation's leading youth organization, cast their ballots at an annual meeting in Dallas, Texas. More than 60 percent of those voting supported the proposal to life the ban.
It looks like a controversial bill affecting student voting might not have enough support to make it in the budget after all.
Democratic State Representative Debbie Phillips says courts have ruled college students who attend Ohio universities full time can vote as Ohioans if they want. She’s taking issue with a part of the proposed budget that would mandate state universities to lose money if they give these students credentials needed to vote.
