Ohio House Democratic Assistant Leader Nicholas J. Celebrezze (D-Parma) issued the following statement in response to today’s session cancellation notice from House Republicans hours before the House was scheduled to vote on a new Republican speaker:

“This chaos and dysfunction prevents us from doing the People’s work. The inability to put politics aside and focus on governing raises serious concerns about the legislature’s inability to pass much needed laws that will grow our economy, create better jobs and improve people’s lives. Never before in the history of this institution has the integrity of our work and the lack of leadership been called into such sharp question by the public and community leaders.”
