Kasich Vetoes Portions Of Controversial Residency Provision, Sales Tax Exemption From Transportation Budget

Gov. John Kasich vetoed controversial language tying voter registration to residency from the transportation budget Wednesday, but left intact a provision that would still set a 30-day deadline for new residents to get an Ohio drivers' license.

Democrats applauded the governor for the veto, but Senate Republicans said the line-item veto did not actually eliminate the requirement for out-of-state college students to get an Ohio license within 30 days of registering to vote in the state.
