In this week's episode of Snollygoster, Ohio's politics podcast from WOSU, hosts Mike Thompson and Steve Brown discuss the change in leadership in the Ohio House as legislators voted to replace the newly-indicted Larry Householder.
With a vote set Thursday to remove House Speaker Larry Householder, just two candidates remain in the race to replace him as leader. However, there’s apparently a disagreement among Republicans on how that can happen.
After taking a secret ballot vote Tuesday, Republicans in the Ohio House have decided to remove House Speaker Larry Householder as their leader in a floor vote on Thursday. But it’s unlikely that they’ll vote to expel Householder, who’s facing a federal racketeering charge related to the nuclear bailout he pushed last year.
Republican lawmakers say they're working on how to move forward given the arrest of House Speaker Larry Householder (R-Glenford), who now faces federal racketeering charges. This could set up a new fight to become the next speaker.
Lawmakers introducing a proposal Wednesday to overhaul Ohio's school funding system said they changed their original plan to direct more money for economically disadvantaged students and phase in changes over six years, rather than four.
Ohio lawmakers considering public input on proposed changes to school funding are hearing from interested parties who say it's a solid start, but want more: more money for certain schools, more clarity on charter-school funding changes and more help for the economically disadvantaged.
State Reps. Bob Cupp (R-Lima) and John Patterson (D-Jefferson) are traveling around the state to present their new school funding formula proposal to different teachers and school administrators around Ohio.
Ohio would spend about $400 million more on school funding next fiscal year and $320 million more the following year under a proposed overhaul of the funding system, according to estimates shared Friday by lawmakers advocating for the plan.
