Today, Speaker Pro Tempore, Matt Huffman outlined a path to prioritize legislation he has jointly sponsored with Representative Andy Thompson that will advance and expedite Ohio’s Common Core repeal effort.

Representative Huffman described a course of action in the next few weeks that will include:

  • Introduction of new repeal legislation that builds upon Sub HB237 and incorporates solutions to address the complexities of repeal experienced by other states
  • Assignment of the legislation to the Rules and Reference Committee under the direction of Chairman Huffman
  • Sponsor and first round of supporting testimony planned for August 12th
  • Supporting testimony continues the week of August 18th
  • An expeditious path to bring the legislation to the House Floor for a vote
