COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) A state senator in Ohio who's sore about being demoted has decided he can no longer live with his boss, the Republican Senate president.

The Columbus Dispatch reports Republican Sen. Bill Seitz of Cincinnati has moved out of the Columbus condominium he shared with President Tom Niehaus of New Richmond, down the Ohio River from Cincinnati.

Seitz says he can no longer afford the "high-priced digs" since Niehaus last week took away his chairmanship of the Senate's Government Oversight and Reform Committee.

Niehaus said he made the move because Seitz was preparing a substitute version of a bill without letting the sponsor know.

Seitz also had ruffled GOP feathers by opposing the bill that became Ohio's new collective bargaining law, which limits the union rights of public employees.
