Scott W. Somerville, Esq., Staff Attorney of HSLDA
Ohio--Amended H.B. 402 Vote Count

From the HSLDA E-lert Service...

April 26, 2002

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

It has come to our attention of that the e-lert update on Ohio House
Bill 402 sent April 25, 2002, contained an inaccuracy that must be
corrected. It appears that Senator ROBERT Gardner voted NO on the
Wachtmann amendment, while Senator RANDY Gardner voted YES, not vice
versa. We appreciate Senator Randy Gardner's stand for family
freedoms, and regret Senator Robert Gardner's unfortunate vote. Home
School Legal Defense Association has apologized to Senator Randy
Gardner, and hopes that this e-mail will prevent any further
confusion. The following is a corrected list of how each senator


Ron Amstutz (R)
Jeffry Armbruster (R)
Steve Austria (R)
Louis Blessing (R)
James Carnes (R)
Kevin Coughlin (R)
Richard Finan (R)
Randy Gardner (R)
David Goodman (R)
Bill Harris (R)
Jay Hottinger (R)
Jeff Jacobson (R)
Jim Jordan (R)
Priscilla Mead (R)
Larry Mumper (R)
Scott Nein (R)
Scott Oelslager (R)
C.J. Prentiss (D)
Robert Spada (R)
Lynn Wachtmann (R)
Doug White (R)
