Governor Signs "Tyler's law", Repeal of "Pink Tax"

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)--Governor Mike DeWine signed two high-profile bills into law on Wednesday.

The Governor put pen-to-paper on "Tyler's Law," which enhances the ride inspection standards for the state, and increases standards required for folks who want to become ride inspectors.

The law is named after Tyler Jarrell, the young man who died when the "Fire Ball" ride broke apart during operation at the 2017 Ohio State Fair.

DeWine also signed a law that repeals the "pink tax", which was the sales tax that applied to feminine hygiene products.

Supporters of the repeal argued that it was discriminatory, since men do not have to buy the products.
