Ohio lawmakers override DeWine veto, pass limits on governor’s coronavirus powers – cleveland.com

COLUMBUS, Ohio—The Republican-led Ohio General Assembly on Wednesday voted to override Gov. Mike DeWine’s veto of legislation to rein in his administration’s coronavirus powers.

Senate Bill 22, which takes effect in 90 days, gives lawmakers the authority to cancel any gubernatorial health orders that last longer than 30 days, require the governor’s office to renew such orders every 60 days, and create a legislative oversight panel.

The bill also limits local health officials’ power to require people to quarantine or self-isolate without a specific medical diagnosis and allows Ohioans to sue over the constitutionality of any state emergency order in their home county.
