March 30, 2015-

Senate Bill 84 would prohibit manufactured homes park operators, condominiums associations, neighborhood associations, and landlords from denying tenants and homeowners the right to display the flag of the State of Ohio, blue star banners, gold star banners, other service flags and the United States flag. The Bill was introduced by State Senator Bill Coley and cosponsored by Senators Bill Beagle, Jay Hottinger, and Joe Uecker.  Senator Beagle told the Daily Advocate, "I believe the ability to display the American flag is a free speech issue of vital importance.  It is a fundamental right."
