In any event, I thought I'd update my readers on what's going on with the bill.
Essentially, the bill is dead on arrival. Without the support of Ohio House Speaker Jon Husted (R-Kettering, pictured above), and with opposition by both Republicans and Democrats, it's very unlikely that H.B. 515 will make it out of committee to even be voted on. And Speaker Husted's chief of staff has condemned the bill as "divisive," stating that Speaker Husted would prefer to focus on job creation during this legislative session. While it doesn't look like H.B. 515 will be going anywhere, I've already submitted an article condemning the bill to http://www.whosoever.org/ which will probably appear in the March/April edition when it comes out in a few days, and I will continue to keep track of H.B. 515.
