Bill on Camp Background Checks Stalls in Ohio
July 24, 2008
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Another camp season is passing by, and there’s no authority for the state to enforce background checks on employees at residential camps across Ohio.
A bill to fix the problem is stalled after the state Legislature broke for the summer in June without passing it.
Bill sponsor State Sen. Steve Stivers, a Republican who is running for Congress, said in late April he hoped he could pass the bill before the start of summer camp season. Democrats have accused him of not following through on a commitment.
