COLUMBUS—In response to Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted’s appeal filed today regarding the recent Golden Week case ruling, Speaker of the Ohio House Clifford Rosenberger (R-Clarksville) released the following statement:

“I’m fully supportive of Secretary Husted and his efforts to appeal the recent court ruling regarding the elimination of Golden Week. It is the General Assembly’s responsibility to create and approve election law in this state and the most recent court decision is another example of a federal judge stepping out of bounds to stall a bill that was passed by Ohio’s legislature through an open and transparent process.

“A bipartisan group of election officials recommended the elimination of  Golden Week to the General Assembly years ago and I was proud to support that legislation. Even without Golden Week, we are still a state that provides one of the most open and accessible voting systems in the country, including 28 days of early voting, and I stand with Secretary Husted in his efforts to appeal this foolish decision by a federal judge.”
