A split Ohio Supreme Court has upheld a state law that invalidates a Cleveland ordinance requiring public works construction projects to hire city residents for 20% of the work. If the construction projects didn’t meet that threshold, the city could cut their contract price by 2.5%. 

A judge’s preliminary injunction against a new state law prohibiting local hiring requirements could have larger implications for all Ohio cities.
