    Last chance for House Bill 495

    Last June the Ohio House passed House Bill 495 (http://www.legislature.state.oh.us/b...?ID=129_HB_495) which removes the need for a competency certificate for a license renewal and also allows Ohio to recognize the license of any state willing to recognize Ohio's.

    The bill has languished in the Ohio Senate due to the summer recess and the Fall campaigning season. The Senate has now scheduled eight sessions to finish this legislative season (http://www.legislature.state.oh.us/today.cfm). If HB 495 isn't voted on during one of these sessions, it is dead and the whole process has to start all over again with the new General Assembly in January.

    Please contact your Ohio senator and also Senate President Tom Niehaus. Ask them to move this bill to a vote before the Senate ends its business in December.

    You can contact Senate President Niehaus and your state senator at the Ohio Senate web site here:
