Understanding Ohio's SB 5 legislation
February 26, 2011 9:32 PM   Subscribe

Help me edumacate myself on Ohio SB 5! As a former resident of WI, I could find news easily enough because the internet already existed when I lived there and I was familiar with online sources. In my attempts to read more about Ohio, I just don't know where to turn. Obviously national media is out as it's been crap at covering recent events in the midwest. Is there an Isthmus equivalent? A few possibly wonky blogs that are right on?

Something with smarter analysis/more info than say, this Columbus Dispatch article.

This analysis by the LSC should answer some questions about the proposed legislation.

It would remove the ability for any public employee to engage in collective bargaining.

Thanks, demiurge. I guess that answers one of my question which was whether the bill covered anything other than unions and collective bargaining (as the WI bill covers an assortment of things).

Plunderbund is a good source of both SB5 news and state budget watchdog news.

The Disgrace is, as usually, very heavily slanted towards the GOP line, so I'd also suggest looking at Cleveland.com - their writing leans more towards the democratic line for a good contrast.

Capital Blog is solid too.
