The groups that filed a lawsuit against the state over the JobsOhio program have filed a new motion, asking the state’s highest court to stop the state from moving forward with plans for that program. In an interview with Ohio Public Radio’s Jo Ingles, Brian Rothenberg of ProgressOhio explains his group wants the Ohio Supreme Court to grant an immediate restraining order against the state.
Rothenberg says his group has serious questions about the constitutionality of JobsOhio for several reasons. Gov. John Kasich says JobsOhio, the new non profit private board that will oversee job creation in Ohio, will be able to compete better with businesses because it won’t be bogged down by unnecessary rules and regulations.
