On May 5th, 2015,  Rep Brenner (OH47)  with 29 sponsors  introduced HB-189 , Voter ID, to the Ohio House.

On May 12th, 2015,  HB-189 was assigned to the Government Accountability and Oversight (GAO) committee, chaired by Wood county Rep Tim Brown (OH3) .

Its now November 10th, 7 months and two or three elections later, HB-189 still sits on Rep Brown’s desk, with ZERO action.

Its been rumored that Gov Kasich has asked Rep Brown to bury the Voter ID bill until after the March 15, 2016 Primary election.  Gov Kasich doesn’t want any controversial issues that could cloud his Presidential run.   Only Gov Kasich and Rep Brown can testify to that.
