COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio Senate on Wednesday overruled Gov. Mike DeWine's (pictured veto of House Bill 68, paving the way for a  transgender ban against minors seeking health care and transgender boys and men playing girls’ and women’s sports in K-12 schools and colleges and universities in Ohio.

The state Senate voted 24-8, largely  along party lines,  and after the House voted to override the veto on Jan 10.

A two-term governor and former US senator,  DeWine bucked his party to veto the bill, prompting former President Donald Trump, the front-runner for the Republican nomination for president, to chastise him publicly.
