Ohio House Expected to Oust Householder Thursday

COLUMBUS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – The Ohio House could be in need of a new Speaker by the end of the day Thursday.

A vote is expected on the ouster of Larry Householder.

Householder has had no response, other than a “no” when asked last week if he would resign.

He faces bribery charges for putting together the $61 million enterprise that got the Nuclear Bailout Bill passed.

But it may not be as easy as a vote.

Attorney General David Yost is telling state leaders that the governor should call a special session and the House should pass a new law with the consent of the Senate, removing the Speaker.

Yost is concerned the internal rules of the House have not been subject to a legal test yet.
