Tri-State residents continue protest of Senate Bill 5

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - More protests have been scheduled at the Ohio Statehouse, as people across the state rally against Senate Bill Five. On Tuesday, a group from the Tri-State will rally together and go to Columbus to protest the bill.

Local residents plan to rally at the Hillcrest Shopping Center before getting on a bus and heading to Columbus at 7 a.m. Thousands of people are expected to attend the protest, scheduled for 10 a.m. 

A fifth hearing on the controversial proposal will be held Tuesday afternoon in Columbus at 1 p.m. The committee could vote on the measure at the hearing, and if that happens it could be approved by the full senate later this week.

The collective bargaining bill has been full of tension since the beginning, not only within the state senate, but across the state with union workers. As it stands right now, workers would have the ability to bargain for wages, but with strict regulations.

House leaders say they want to approve it by March 15, when Governor John Kasich unveils his two-year budget.
