Abortion limit, voter ID await action in Ohio Legislature



Published: Fri, June 15, 2012 @ 10:37 a.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Sixteen significant policy bills moved through the state Legislature in the final two months before Ohio lawmakers began summer break this week, yet a handful of closely watched proposals linger.

Intensive lobbying and local attack ads on key Republican senators didn’t succeed in knocking free the contentious heartbeat bill. The measure would impose the most-stringent abortion limit in the nation, all but banning the procedure at the first detectable fetal heartbeat.

Other measures lawmakers left unfinished include a bill adjusting taxes on financial institutions, a package of measures changing eligibility and payout formulas for four of Ohio’s public pension funds, and a proposal toughening Ohio’s voter ID requirement.

Bills that saw action included a crackdown on human trafficking, new gambling regulations and an updated state budget.
