COLUMBUS— The Ohio House of Representatives today voted to override Governor DeWine’s recent veto of House Bill 68, announced State Rep. D.J. Swearingen (R-Huron).

Swearingen issued the following statement regarding the vote:

“Today, I voted to override the Governor’s veto of House Bill 68, the Save Adolescents from Experimentation Act (SAFE) and the Save Women’s Sports Act. I am proud to stand up for Ohio parents and children whether the threat is economic constraints, government overreach, or woke ideology. While Rep. Carruthers and I’s pro-family legislation ‘The Parents Bill of Rights’ (HB 8) awaits action in the Senate, I look forward to HB 68 becoming law in our state. It is a right step forward.”

House Bill 68’s override now heads to the Ohio Senate for consideration.
