Here are a couple of links I found this morning:
Given that he’s been rather busy salvaging the uber political bill he sponsored, HB 151, it’s no wonder that, according to Bill Callahan in an update to this post, the vote on 117 scheduled for Weds. was moved.
As I read about all the amendments being prepared for 117, I couldn’t help but feel that, as a constituent of Mandel’s, it’s precisely this kind pushing off on an incredibly important bill – 117 – related to Ohio’s infrastructure and directly impacting the life and pocketbook of every Ohioan, that makes me and other constituents roll our eyes at the quantity of time and effort Mandel has put into HB 151, which now appears to be nearly dead.
All for what?
Let’s hope that either he is replaced as Vice Chair of the Public Utilities Committee or he extricates himself from 151 ASAP if he’s going to deal competently with SB117.
Btw, anyone who can detail the duties and responsibilities, to the legislature and the voters, of a committee Vice Chair, please do.
