Introducing legislation

Sen. Rob McColley, R-Napoleon, is seen in this screenshot from a press conference in November shown on The Ohio Channel discussing new legislation he was co-sponsoring.

“Let me be clear that I fully support the premise and goals of Senate Bill 1, and I applaud the House for sending the bill to the Senate with the changes therein, which is why yesterday’s decision to send the bill to conference committee was a difficult one. However, in the past couple weeks I have been made aware of some ambiguous and unclear language that needs fixed in order to avoid unintended consequences.”

“Further, this bill also should include language making it very clear that neither the director of the Department of Health or the governor have the authority to close polling locations for the upcoming General Election. I realize that time is of the essence, but we must get this right.“
