Residency Provision Sinks Unanimity As House Finalizes Transportation Budget

The last time opposition to a provision dealing with residency threatened Democratic support for the transportation budget, Republicans nixed the amendment. But the House majority drove forward Thursday with a different sort of residency controversy and several minority members bailed.

The House's 78-13 vote to adopt a conference committee's report was the final step before sending the $7.06 billion transportation spending measure (HB 53*) back to Gov. John Kasich, whom Democrats urged to exercise his line-item veto authority before ratifying the bill.
