The state’s legislative leaders say a bill allowing Ohioans to carry hidden guns won’t be a priority this year. House Speaker Larry Householder says lawmakers have too much else to worry about, starting with the state’s budget deficit. He says the idea will take a back seat compared to legislation involving the budget and long-term funding for technology and job development. Senate President Doug White says some lawmakers continue to have strong feelings about the need for a concealed weapons law. But White says the idea hasn’t made the Senate’s top-five priority list. The House and Senate passed concealed weapons bills last year but the legislation died before the versions were reconciled.
