Ohio House approves new Congressional district map

The Ohio House held session this week to vote on two pieces of legislation, House Bills 318 and 319. House Bill 318, which moves next year’s primary election from March to May, was approved by a 63-29 vote. An attempt to add an emergency clause in the bill did not receive the necessary two-thirds majority for inclusion. Therefore, the bill will not be in effect for the December 7 filing deadline for the March primary.

Republicans also passed House Bill 319, which outlines Congressional districts for the next decade. The new map unveiled this week, places U.S. Representatives Dennis Kucinich (D- Cleveland) and Marcy Kaptur (D- Toledo) in the same district. Representatives Steve Austria (R- Beavercreek) and Michael Turner (R- Dayton) would also be grouped in the same district and under the map, Representatives Betty Sutton (D- Chardon) and Jim Renacci (R- Alliance) would face one another in an election. The map also creates a new district in Franklin County.
