COLUMBUS—State Senator Gayle Manning (R-North Ridgeville) was sworn in as the Majority Whip for the Ohio Senate on Tuesday during opening ceremonies held at the Statehouse. The special session of the Senate also marked the beginning of the 132nd Ohio General Assembly. 

"I am honored to have been chosen by my colleagues to serve as the Senate Majority Whip and as a member of the Senate's leadership," said Manning.
