Ohio’s new leader of public education is out less than a month after he was sworn in. Democrats and doctors said Republicans were trying to mandate anatomy exams for girls who want to play sports, and questions continued about who will be on August’s primary ballot. 

We break down what it all means on this week’s episode of Ohio Politics Explained.

It’s a podcast from the USA TODAY Network Ohio Bureau where we catch you up on the state’s political news in 15 minutes or less. This week, host Anna Staver was joined by reporter Jessie Balmert.

1) Gun control in Washington

The U.S. House of Representatives voted for a package of gun control reforms that would raise the age to buy semi-automatic rifles to 21, ban bump stocks and require the safe storage of firearms. 

Most Republicans voted against the bill, but Ohio outgoing Rep. Anthony Gonzalez was one of five GOP members who voted for it.
