oath *and* discourages municipalities from expressing opposition to the USA PATRIOT ACT (a deceitful name) — how does such a law get

Politics – New Ohio Law Allows Cops to Request ID

Ohio Republican Gov. Bob Taft on Wednesday signed a bill into law passed by

the state legislature with barely a word of dissent. Supporters of the state’s security measure, which takes effect in 90 days, say

it’s a tool the state can use in fighting terrorism. …

call the measure the Ohio Patriot Act. The law also requires those applying for state driver’s licenses to sign a form that they

haven’t supported terrorist organizations.
