The two lawmakers in charge of getting a concealed weapons bill through the legislature met with Governor Taft’s top aides to try to work out an agreement that will satisfy all sides on the matter. Representative Jim Aslanides , a republican from Coshocton, who sponsored the bill, and Senator Steve Austria, a Beavercreek republican, who carried the bill in the Senate, met for about an hour with Taft’s aides. Taft supports the Senate version of the bill, but not the House version. It’s the first time Taft has supported any bill allowing Ohioans to carry hidden guns. Aslanides says that the meeting went well and that another one may take place today. He says there is a strong willingness to get work done on the bill.
