Dayton Daily News: New version of right to carry bill to be considered

Buried in a Dayton Daily News story about the 2003 budget comes this little tidbit about Senate consideration of HB274:

Sen. Jeff Jacobson, R-Butler Twp., said today he will introduce a new version of legislation giving Ohioans the right to carry concealed weapons.

The House passed its concealed-carry bill last March with the approval of the Buckeye State Sheriffs’ Association. Jacobson has been negotiating with the Ohio Fraternal Order of Police and the National Rifle Association to come up with a plan to win maximum support.

Taft has said he would veto a bill that didn’t have the support of major law enforcement groups. The FOP, the Ohio Highway Patrol and the Ohio Association of Police Chiefs oppose the House version of the bill.
