COVID-19 State Updates: March 24

Everything you need to know about state coronavirus response efforts for March 24, 2020.



State Officials announced three deaths on Monday related to the coronavirus, bringing the total to six in Ohio at that point in time.

The Governor has directed members of his cabinet to look to cut their budgets by up to 20 percent.


Speaker of the House Larry Householder announced that the Ohio House will be in session on March 25 and 26. The Senate announced that its March 25 session will begin at 10:00 a.m. Both chambers may suspend rules to forgo the committee process in order to act in a timely fashion on emergency legislation.

It’s thought state legislators will put all coronavirus-related issues into a single omnibus bill, rather than having lawmakers stay at the Statehouse to vote on separate bills. For any state bill to take effect immediately, it must include an “emergency clause,” which requires two-thirds support in the Ohio House and Ohio Senate. This means a level of support from House Democrats will be necessary to pass legislation.

Groups are pushing for an earlier Ohio primary date than June 2, due to local tax issues and school levies.The Secretary of State of Ohio believes holding the election before June 2 is “logistically impossible.”
