The House Republican gridlock that’s lead to weeks of dysfunction may soon come to an end. A plan by the interim leader could lead to a new acting speaker, which could open the floodgates for legislation that’s been sitting on the sidelines during the impasse.
There are more than 150 bills waiting for a full chamber vote by the Ohio House. It’s not unusual to have a lot of bills that have been approved by committees or passed in the Senate. But traditionally the House tends to pass a few dozen bills in the last weeks leading up to a long summer break.
