Kasich Rushed to Sign Anti-Public Union Law in Ohio

Governor John Kasich of Ohio couldn’t wait to sign the Republican-led anti-public union bill known as SB 5, which restricts the collective bargaining rights of over 100,000 public employees including teachers. Analysis of the overwhelming public opposition of the bill is available here on the Daily Kos. The Kent Stater has a good write-up of the vote today including how many signatures will be needed to initiate a referendum here. Kasich signed the bill at 7:20pm tonight according to WYTV here.
