In the Ohio Senate, Democrats and Republicans came together to agree on something ... almost unanimously.
Yes, nearly every single member (the final tally was 30-1) voted to repeal the so-called "Pink Tax," which unfairly puts sales tax on tampons, pads and other hygiene products used by all who menstruate.
Now that proposal, which already cleared the Ohio House of Representatives, is heading to Gov. Mike DeWine to sign into law.
The legislation was co-sponsored by Miamisburg's Republican State Rep. Niraj Antani and Cincinnati's Democratic State Rep. Brigid Kelly.
To make the bill a little more thrilling, other nuggets of joy were folded into its verbiage, including an income-tax deduction for teachers purchasing school items for their classrooms with their own money as well as nixing a sales tax on adult diapers for those on Medicaid.
A similar bill was introduced in the Ohio House last December, but didn't pass in the Senate. If and when Gov. DeWine signs the Pink Tax bill, Ohio will become the 16th state to eliminate sales tax on all period-related products.
