State Rep. David Leland (D-Columbus) issued the following statement in response to today’s session cancellation notice from House Republicans hours before the House was scheduled to vote on a new Republican speaker:

“In the wake of reports of FBI raids of the house of disgraced former Speaker Cliff Rosenberger, Republican leadership cancelled yet another session today. The majority remains haunted by the Rosenberger scandal. When we put partisan politics above the people, it’s the taxpayers who suffer. Ohioans deserve better. There is important work left for this General Assembly to do this year, and instead of holding the people’s work hostage, we should be coming together to defend the integrity of this institution and get back to the work we were sent here to do.”
