Legislation in Action

Newest Developments Impacting You and Your Clients:

The SAFE Act Bill

All Practice Areas

 

The Ohio Senate voted on Jan 24, 2024 to override Governor DeWine’s veto of HB 68. The final vote was 24-8 in favor of an override.

No emergency clause was added to the bill, so it will follow the traditional timeline and go into effect in 90 days.


The Ohio House vote to overturn Governor DeWine’s veto of HB 68 occurred on Jan 10, 2024. Those in favor of overturning the veto garnered 65 votes, enough to complete an overturn.


Governor DeWine vetoed HB68: The SAFE Act Bill.  However, the Ohio House is planning on convening to discuss overriding the veto. Knowing that the legislature might try this, DeWine signed an executive order banning surgeries on minors with gender dysphoria and he submitted several administrative rules that require comprehensive therapy before treatments of a minor can begin, as well as a review with a patient of the potential risks for informed consent.
