According to AP press Governor Kasik has vetoed a bill like this before calling it unconstitutional.
The heartbeat bill now goes to the Ohio Senate. Gov. John Kasich vetoed it in 2016 and says he would do it again. The Ohio Legislature has enough votes to override the veto, however, and also Governor-elect Mike DeWine says he would sign the bill into law.https://t.co/qjhFc39D7d
