Emily McCord speaks to Ohio Public Radio's Karen Kasler in this week's installment of PoliticsOhio. Kasler reports the aftermath of last week's election. She finds that opinion differ on the potential economic impact by the latest move by the Tea Party to make Ohio a "Right To Work" state. She says while the outcome of Issue 3, the ballot issue that allow Ohioans to opt-out of the federal health care mandate, doesn't mean much now on the federal level, but could affect the state's preparation for the changes.
It not even been a week since voters overturned Senate Bill 5 - the law that would have limited the bargaining rights of public employees. But for teachers, one of the most nerve-wracking aspects of that legislation is still on its way. Ida Lieszkovszky of StateImpact Ohio has this report.
Republican leaders of the Ohio legislature hint they might come back soon and try to pass parts of Senate Bill 5. But as Ohio Public Radio’s Jo Ingles reports, Democrats in the Ohio Senate are sponsoring a bill that they say would prevent that from happening.
