On Wednesday, Governor John Kasich backtracked on Senate Bill 5, asking union leaders to negotiate a compromise on the collective bargaining law he championed and end efforts to repeal it.
Gov. Kasich made clear he wants the SB5 voter referendum to go away, but he did not outline provisions of the law he is willing to lose.
One-point-three million signatures were collected to get the repeal effort on the November 8 ballot.
