Ohio moves to protect flag-flying rights

The Ohio Senate approved legislation Tuesday that would ensure residents of manufactured home parks, condos and certain other neighborhoods can fly U.S., state and military service flags.  HB 18 passed on the unanimous vote and awaits concurrence by the Ohio House and Gov. John Kasich’s signature.  Sen. Bill Coley (R-West Chester) said comparable legislation passed the Ohio Senate earlier this session.  “Currently, the display of the American Flag is protected by federal law,” he said. “It’s not clear that the display of the Blue Star Banner for parents of children or family members who are an active duty military and stationed abroad in service of our country, those banners are not currently protected under Ohio law or U.S. law. What this bill does is correct that.”    Read the article……………
