Ohio House Passes Bill To Shield Lethal Injection Drug Makers

The Ohio House has approved a Senate-passed bill shielding the names of companies that provide the state with lethal injection drugs. Backers say it is necessary to obtain  the drugs to restart executions. Opponents say it's naive to think the bill can truly protect companies' names from being revealed. The companies have said they do not want their products used to take human life. The bill was approved after the Senate made changes to the original House plan. It now goes to the Governor, who is expected to sign it into law.
