Hearings on Senate Bill 305 start tomorrow.

The goal of the bill is to prevent discriminatory practices on the basis of “sexual orientation”.

Besides the normal cast of characters coming out for and against this bill- we also have, for the first time I can remember, the business community getting involved.

Big Ohio companies like Cardinal Health, Cleveland Clinic and Nationwide Insurance are finally doing the right thing by publicly supporting this legislation

Unfair practices are bad for business and bad for Ohio’s economy. Top Ohio employers like Nationwide Insurance say that Ohio’s intolerance harms their ability to attract and keep a skilled, creative workforce.

I love to see issues like this that drive a wedge between the angry, christofacist, social-conservatives and the pro-business wing of the GOP.
