COLUMBUS—State Senator Rob McColley (R-Napoleon) today released the following statement regarding the Senate's veto override Senate Bill 22:
"It is unfortunate that we've come to this point. Senate Bill 22 is a strong vehicle for restoring the natural separation of powers that is essential to the function of our government. This bill does not prevent the executive branch from issuing heath orders or acting swiftly in times of crisis. Simply, this bill restores reasonable checks and balances which all branches of government are subject to, no matter how well intentioned their actions may be. I am thankful to my colleagues in the Senate for voting to override the veto and I thank the members of the House for doing the same."
