A proposal to add extra requirements on where addiction recovery homes can be located in Ohio was vetoed Tuesday. Governor John Kasich used a line-item veto to do away with the proposal from State Representative Robert Sprague. If approved, the measure would have required a “resolution of support” from county commissioners before recovery housing could be bought.
Kasich said the rule could have violated fair housing laws and led to illegal discrimination. Sprague tells the Courier, “I guess the governor and I disagree on fair housing.” He added he wanted to ensure accountability and transparency in how tax dollars were being spent. Sprague will not continue to pursue the proposal.
