The ACLU of Ohio is encouraged by Speaker Householder’s stated plan to broadcast committee hearings in the Ohio House. Greater transparency and increased understanding of the legislative process will surely benefit all Ohioans. We hope the Senate will follow suit and do the same for all, instead of just some, of their own committees. In addition, we support passing legislation to formally enshrine this expansion into law so future legislative leaders cannot turn cameras off on a whim.
