Ohio Rep Manning Delays Start of Hearing on Parents Right to Know Act, Senate Puts Bill’s Language in Their Budget in Order to Get it Passed

COLUMBUS, Ohio –  House Bill 240 (HB240),  the Parents Right to Know Act, received its first hearing in the Ohio House Primary and Secondary Education Committee on Wednesday soon after ramped up pressure came from Rep Reggie Stoltzfus (R-Paris Twp), Ohio Value Voters (OVV) and a report from The Ohio Star drew attention to the law and committee Chairwoman Gayle Manning (R- North Ridgeville) who was suppressing the bill according to Stoltzfus and OVV.

However, Stoltzfus told The Star in an interview that Manning intentionally and passive-aggressively caused a three-and-a-half-hour delay in the hearing start time.  “She is angry at me, and other folks, for putting pressure on her to hear conservative bills and that is the way she is taking it out on me,” said Stoltzfus.
