Bridge Safety and Reporters’ Roundtable: A veto denied, a pending lawsuit, and uses of campaign cash

Posted Thursday, August 2, 2007

Before the roundtable, we chat with a local expert in monitoring bridge safety. Art Huckelbridge has some perspective on the Minnesota tragedy--he trains the Ohio Department of Transportation and his students at Case Western Reserve University in how to track the health of aging bridges. As far as the roundtable goes: The Ohio Supreme Court just handed down a decision against Governor Ted Strickland. You may remember his veto of a bill former Governor Bob Taft had failed to sign. Well, according to five justices, Governor Strickland wasn't minding the constitution. Also in the news this week, the city of Euclid prepares for a Federal lawsuit, the BWC gets a new board, the democratic party chair uses campaign money to pay his his wife. You're invited to join us for the reporters' roundtable, Thursday morning at nine.
