Ohio Legislative Updates

May 31, 2022

The Ohio legislature has recessed with no scheduled session dates until mid-November, after the general election. During the final session before recessing at the end of May, more than 30 bills passed out of the House and Senate. Also, federal judges have finally weighed in to set the General Assembly redistricting maps, however, the maps will only be valid for two years as they are deemed unconstitutional. Ohio will hold its second primary on August 2nd for the Ohio House and Senate. See G2G’s full report on Ohio politics, legislative activities, education, and health.

The state legislature is now on Spring Break and scheduled to return around mid-May. At that time, we hope to see a Capital Budget Bill introduced and quickly moved through the legislative process to pass before summer. Redistricting continues to be top of mind for legislators. Because the General Assembly maps are still not approved, Ohio will have two primaries. The May 3rd primary will have statewide and Congressional candidates on the ballot. The Ohio House and Senate primary will be held at a later date, likely August 2nd. However, the maps seem to have caused one incumbent to announce his retirement this week: Congressman Bob Gibbs. Finally, Governor DeWine held his first State of the State in House Chambers with an audience since 2019 on March 23, highlighting Ohio’s successes and his continued plans and priorities.

All eyes in Ohio are still on redistricting as maps are still not confirmed with the May 3rd primary. When the Ohio Redistricting Commission failed to produce new General Assembly maps within their 10 day deadline as given by the Court, Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor asked that Commission appear before the Court in person to explain the reason for the delay and why they should not be held in contempt. The court appearance was scheduled but is now in continuance with no date reset.
