Ohio Senate Pulls Student Voting Measure from Budget Proposal

Share on Facebook Share Share on Twitter Share

The plan that would have changed rules for student voting at Ohio’s universities is dead -- at least for now. Ohio Public Radio’s Jo Ingles reports.

The plan went like this: If a state funded university gave an out of state student utility credentials to vote as a resident of Ohio, that university would also have to give that student the in-state tuition rate. It’s a move that could cost state universities more than $300 million. But Senate President Keith Faber says that proposal has been stripped from the Senate version of the budget.

FABER: "We had a significant number of members on both sides of the aisle who requested removal of that so we ceded to those requests at this point. I think there’s still an issue that’s worthy of being discussed as to why people are issuing no-bill bills but that’s a different discussion."

Faber says dragging the issue of tuition into that discussion just didn’t make any sense at this point.
