The Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board says it will maintain its policy of preventing same-sex couples and others without valid Ohio wedding licenses from renting the Statehouse and its grounds for weddings and receptions.
After months of touting that Ohio’s would be the first Statehouse in the country to have a Holocaust memorial -- it turns out it won’t.
Iowa has already broken ground on a similar memorial, and will dedicate it in October – while construction on Ohio’s memorial hasn’t even started. Joyce Garver Keller is the executive director of Ohio Jewish Communities, which represents Ohio’s eight Jewish federations in Ohio, says she told Governor John Kasich that Ohio’s Statehouse memorial would be the first. But she says, in the end it really doesn’t matter who's first.
