Referendum on HB 6?

The Ohio Constitution allows citizens to initiate a referendum at the ballot box to repeal bills enacted by the Ohio General Assembly. The process for initiating a referendum on HB 6 has already begun by one group calling itself Ohioans Against Corporate Bailouts. The OMA staff is evaluating the proposal. Should the signature collection effort succeed, the item would be added to the November 2020 ballot, which will feature the presidential race. Members of the OMA Government Affairs Committee will discuss this issue in some depth at the Aug. 22 meeting. 7/25/2019
