The Ohio Senate takes up and passes on a party-line vote the bill to ratify the Fourteenth Amendment.

The Ohio Senate took up the ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and after a heated debate, passed it on a strict party vote, with twenty-one Republicans for and twelve Democrats against.  The measure passed the Ohio House the next day, on a similarly firm party-line vote, 54 to 25. Ohio then became the eighth state to ratify the measure. The vote became the focal point of Ohio politics in the hard fought election campaign of the remainder of the year and the action was, if fact, rescinded the following October.  The Ohio legislature finally re-ratified the Fourteenth Amendment on April 23, 2003.  (By John Osborne)
