As predicted, Sub. HB 487, the Governors Mid Biennium Review bill which contains the SAO/OSFC merger, passed the Ohio Senate yesterday by a vote of 25-8 and went to the Ohio House which, as expected, unanimously refused to concur in Senate amendments. The bill now goes to a Conference Committee composed of appointed House and Senate members who will resolve differences in the two versions of the bill.  

The SAO/OSFC provisions are not in play.
