Just had this press release forwarded to me from the Ohio Senate leadership:
HARRIS: SENATE TO HOLD HEARINGS, PURSUE LEGISLATION IF NECESSARY TO STRENGTHEN ENFORCEMENT OF OHIO’S PUBLIC SAFETY LAWS
COLUMBUS – Senate President Bill Harris (R-Ashland) today directed the Senate’s Government Oversight Committee to conduct hearings on the failure of the Ohio Department of Public Safety to expeditiously address a shortcoming in its verification process that allowed thousands of undocumented immigrants to register cars and get license plates.
60,000 illegal aliens with official Ohio driver’s licenses has a way of getting under the skin of people.
Politically speaking, it’s in the best interest of Republicans to keep this issue at the forefront for as long as possible. It hits Strickland where it hurts most, decision making.
