House Bill 1219: A Study


Paul M. Scott


Because H.B. 1219 does raise certain constitutional questions which will soon come before the courts, and because of its potential impact on higher education in Ohio, a complete study of it is in order. This Comment seeks to do that by analysis of the background events leading up to the bill's introduction, its legislative history, a summary and explanation of the act's important provisions, an analysis of potential constitutional infirmities in view of current court decisions, and a discussion of relevant policy considerations. The purpose of this Comment is not to assess the wisdom or desirability of the statute, but to examine it in terms of current concepts of due process.
