Public Records Law Passes Out of Ohio House

HB 9, a law that will change Ohio's Public Records Law, passed the Ohio House on Wednesday by a count of 93-1 and was sent to the Senate. The bill's preamble states the law will:

...create the office of Public Access Counselor in the Court of Claims, to create a library records commission in each public library and a special taxing district records commission in each special taxing district, to allow a concealed carry licensee to prohibit the disclosure of the licensee's information to a journalist, to revise the records commissions laws, and to eliminate the provision that certain records made by a public accountant incident to an audit of a public office or private entity are not public records.
