Senate Bill 117 Update

Thanks to lots and lots of phone calls from members of the public, House Public Utilities Committee members have changed course: instead of having amendments and a vote yesterday, they will accept more testimony and will work on 20 amendments this week. Another committee meeting is scheduled for next Tuesday at 11:00 a.m. where it is likely the bill will be amended and passed.

Without the pressure from the phone calls to state reps., the public interest would have been lost on this bill. But it’s not over yet. Local Voice Ohio continues to follow the situation in Columbus and advises there will be a need for more phone calling from the public, and we’ll let you know when that is.
