Home health aides

Republican Ohio Governor John Kasich has rescinded a pair of directives issued by his predecessor that allowed independent home health care and child-care workers doing business with the state to unionize.

Ohio Governor John Kasich's administration says it's open to delaying a proposal that has sparked hours of legislative testimony from individuals with disabilities who fear it could limit their choice in picking the workers who tend to their basic needs at home. 

Certain Ohioans with disabilities or chronic conditions who get care at home through Medicaid could see a change in who helps them bathe, get dressed and tend to their basic needs.
