Gas tax, abortion decision and a post-Trump PAC

Ohio won’t suspend its gas taxes anytime soon. Renewing your driver’s license is about to get easier, and the ongoing wait for a decision on abortion.

We break down what it all means on this week’s episode of Ohio Politics Explained.

It’s a podcast from the USA TODAY Network Ohio Bureau where we catch you up on the state’s political news in 15 minutes or less. This week, host Anna Staver was joined by reporter Jessie Balmert.
