COLUMBUS, Ohio (WDTN) — Ohio lawmakers have modified a bill to change the state’s concealed weapons law.
The final vote on the bill happened around 3 a.m. on Friday, after the Senate and House both approved the measure.
The bill still allows licensed gun owners to carry concealed weapons on college campuses, according to Reuters.
It also removes a state ban on carrying concealed weapons in public areas like day care centers.
But, the new version of the bill is different from one that passed in the Senate earlier in the week.
The version heading to Governor John Kasich’s desk for consideration removed provisions that would have allowed gun owners to carry concealed weapons into government buildings like town halls and libraries.
If Governor Kasich signs the bill, the board of trustees at Ohio’s public universities would have the option to allow people to carry concealed weapons on campuses.
Operators of public institutions like day cares would be able to choose whether to prohibit guns in their buildings.
