THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH

State senators last night took a knife to many of the most controversial provisions of Gov. Ted Strickland’s transportation plan, including tougher enforcement of Ohio’s seat-belt law, cameras to catch speeders in construction zones and a requirement that drivers turn on their headlights in the rain.The Senate’s transportation committee did not, however, kill the most debated provision of the plan: a passenger-rail corridor connecting Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton and Cincinnati.
