COLUMBUS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – Even as Ohioans prepare to hunker down every night for Governor Mike DeWine’s “curfew”, the state legislature is telling him to stop closing businesses.

By a 57 to 11 vote Wednesday, the House passed a bill preventing the governor from taking any closing actions.

It now goes to the Senate.

The governor says he’ll veto it.

The 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. closing of most retail businesses starts Thursday night.

The governor will have more to say about it Thursday afternoon at 2 on 1480 WHBC and here at whbc.com
