Election 2011 http://wyso.org en PoliticsOhio: Ohio's Election Sets Stage For 2012 http://wyso.org/post/politicsohio-ohios-election-sets-stage-2012 <p><em>For PoliticsOhio this week, Emily McCord speaks to Ellen Belcher, the former editor of the Dayton Daily News editorial page. The nation&rsquo;s eyes have been on Ohio as voters overwhelmingly overturned Issue 2, the referendum on the law that limits collective bargaining rights. Belcher discusses the possible impact this will have on next year&rsquo;s election. She also reports on the latest move by Tea Party groups who are proposing a constitutional amendment to prevent worker from being required to join unions, and says this may prove a problem for Ohio Republicans.</em></p> Fri, 11 Nov 2011 21:39:59 +0000 Emily McCord 6758 at http://wyso.org Democrats Propose Bill To Stop Senate Bill 5 Elements From Returning http://wyso.org/post/democrats-propose-bill-stop-senate-bill-5-elements-returning <p><em>Republican leaders of the Ohio legislature hint they might come back soon and try to pass parts of Senate Bill 5.
