Ohio House Speaker Jason Stephens (R-Kitts Hill) has released the following statement regarding Governor DeWine’s veto of Sub. House Bill 68:

“It is disappointing that the Governor vetoed House Bill 68, the SAFE Act and Save Women’s Sports.  The bill sponsors, and The House, have dedicated nearly three years to get the bill right — to empower parents and protect children. It was passed by veto-proof majorities in each chamber. We will certainly discuss as a caucus and take the appropriate next steps.”
