Act Now: Tell Your Legislators to Override Governor Dewine’s Veto of SB311

Help put an end to the abuse of emergency powers in Ohio

Our Stand

UPDATE: SB 311 has not come up for vote as of December 11, 2020. Since December 9, 2020, it has become clear that backdoor deals might be happening to change the language of SB 311 before it comes up for the veto over-ride vote. Act now on this campaign to make it clear that SB 311 must be voted on in the form in which it was passed by the Ohio General Assembly! Also, call Senate President Obhof’s office today (614-466-7505) and say, “No more deals with DeWine! Bring SB 311 to the floor in the form in which it was passed by the general assembly.”

Your immediate action is needed to help stop the abuse of power in Ohio. On December 4, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine vetoed SB 311, a bill passed by both legislative houses to help restore the balance of power in the state by limiting the powers of the governor and the health director. For this bill to become law (and the abuse of power in Ohio to be kept in check), it has to go to a veto override vote in the House and the Senate. For this to happen, there must be a three-fifths YES vote in both chambers. That means we need 20 yes votes in the Senate and 60 yes votes in the House for SB 311 to become law. Your voice is needed to make this happen!

On Wednesday, December 9, the Senate is set to vote on the veto override for SB 311. We expect it to quickly go to the House floor if it passes in the Senate.

The “veto proof” majority we had when SB 311 initially passed now appears to be threatened. The legislators who aren’t a sponsor or co-sponsor of this bill need to hear from you; please urge them to vote YES on the veto override.

It takes courage in our political climate for republican representatives to go against the republican governor’s leadership. Email your legislators now to give them the support (and pressure) they need to override Governor DeWine’s veto.
