Two state lawmakers and a policy group are re-filing a lawsuit against the private job-creation board JobsOhio. The suit challenges the law championed by Governor John Kasich creating an appointed nine-member board to handle economic development deals.

The Ohio Supreme Court ruled last week that the Court was the wrong venue to hear the case. ProgressOhio, Senator Mike Skindell, and Representative Dennis Murray are re-filing in a county court in Columbus. They argue that it is illegal for JobsOhio to invest state money in private companies and pass bills granting special corporate powers.

Gov. Kasich pushed JobsOhio as a way to all Ohio to move forward amid high unemployment.
