On Tuesday, September 28th, the Ohio House Government Oversight Committee heard bill sponsor testimony on House Bill 325, Emergency Powers legislation.
Sponsored by Representative Scott Wiggam (R-1), House Bill 325 declares firearm possession, transportation, carrying, commerce, and training range access, as well as hunting and fishing, to be life sustaining, essential activities. Both local and state government authorities are prohibited from infringing upon these rights under the guise of a declared emergency, either on a local or state level. Further, the legislation provides legal recourse for people who experience unjust infringements on these essential rights.
Representative Wiggam’s testimony can be read here.
We are expecting a second hearing for HB 325 to be scheduled in the next two weeks.
