Columbus, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland has given a second batch of documents about his school-funding plan to a GOP lawmaker who sued for access to them.
Strickland, a democrat, said Friday he had delivered an additional 6,171 pages via cd-rom to sate Rep. Seth Morgan on Thursday.
The Governor gave Morgan about 1,000 pages on Tuesday, after Morgan filed a lawsuit against Strickland in the Ohio Supreme Court alleging that he had failed to respond to two public records requests.
Strickland says he has provided more documents than is legally required and has maintained that the records request is a political stunt.
Morgan, of Huber Heights, has said the request is necessary to make sure the legislature has the material it needs to evaluate Strickland's school-funding plan.
