The Republican leader of the Ohio House says elements of a contentious collective bargaining law facing a repeal effort Tuesday could be resurrected by lawmakers if the law is rejected.
House Speaker William Batchelder told reporters Thursday the Legislature would wait until 2012 to begin such debate because the issue is "too hot" right now.
Polls show about 6 in 10 Ohioans want the law repealed. It limits bargaining powers of more than 350,000 public workers, bans strikes, scraps binding arbitration and eliminates promotions based solely on seniority.
A union-backed coalition that opposes the bill has raised $24 million in its fight against the law, three times what opponents have reported.
Batchelder says Republicans who championed the measure know through polling which elements of the bill people like and dislike.
