Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine gives an update at MetroHealth Medical Center on the state's preparedness and education efforts to limit the potential spread of a new virus which caused a disease called COVID-19, Thursday, Feb. 27, 2020, in Cleveland.

Gov. Mike DeWine on Friday indicated he wouldn’t sign any bill that bans transgender girls and women from competing in female sports, saying it’s not a matter for government to decide.

His comments came hours after Ohio House Republicans passed a ban, prompting House Democrats to yell and pound desks while outside the Statehouse transgender rights advocates protested.

Today on All Sides with Ann Fisher, lawmakers race to find agreement on a $75 billion biennial budget bill with days to go, and a law enforcement official will replace Larry Householder in the Ohio House. We discuss this and more on our Weekly Reporter Roundtable.

Guests:

  • Jo Inges, reporter, Ohio Public Radio Statehouse News Bureau
  • Julie Carr Smyth, statehouse correspondent, The Associated Press
