Ohio Senate President Outlines Priorities

Republican Ohio Senate president Keith Faber says extended term limits, changes to the political map-drawing process, and tougher abortion restrictions are among issues that could arise in the next two-year legislative session.

Faber says the fate of certain hot-button issues will depend on his GOP colleagues, who hold 23 of 33 seats in the chamber. Faber says his caucus has "significant interest" in seeing Senate-proposed redistricting changes debated and finalized this session. He also says he's working with Senate Minority Leader Eric Kearney to identify at least five bipartisan priority bills. Faber says jobs will be the Senate's top priority.
