State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) released the following statement in response to Governor Kasich’s line item veto of the harmful voting provision in the transportation budget:

“I am very pleased to see this harmful, ill-conceived provision come out of the transportation budget. Regrettably, our most fundamental democratic right has become a pawn in partisan games and even good bills get hijacked with schemes to stop people from voting. We never should have had this fight, especially in the transportation budget bill. Thank you for doing the right thing today, Governor Kasich.”
