"...I spoke to the the speaker at the time promoting this legistalation, and asked if he could put a provision removing the CCW requirement to open carry in a vehicle..."
Two things, 1) your title is not accurate, and 2) you're a little bit behind the times re: car carry.
First, the title says OFCC is seeking "removal of a CCW license to open carry in an automobile". This is unclear and inaccurate. OFCC is seeking to do away with the notification portion to LEO's related to carrying in an automobile, not to change the requirement to have a CHL in order to legally carry a loaded pistol in a vehicle.
Second, Ohio law does not currently require a CHL holder to open carry in an automobile - that was changed two years ago or so: http://www.ohioattorneygeneral.gov/g...s-Booklet.aspx See page 14.
