Common Core still contentious among GOP legislators

  // Tuesday, 22 July 2014 21:15 //

With 22 Republican signatures, a discharge petition aimed at forcing a House vote on a bill thatwould eliminate Common Core in Ohio remains well short of the 50 needed to initiate action.

But more important than the number of signatures is who has signed it. One name in particularstands out: Rep. Cliff Rosenberger of Clarksville, the front-runner to become the next speaker.

“It’s an issue that concerns a lot of folks around the state of Ohio, and it’s something we haveto give due attention to and get it addressed,” Rosenberger said of the education standards.

With House Speaker William G. Batchelder, R-Medina, leaving at the end of the year because ofterm limits, Rosenberger says he has more than 60 percent of the caucus backing him for speaker,thanks to a recent deal reached with one of his primary rivals.
