Group seeks to block Ohio referendum law

Fri, Nov 7 2008

A conservative national group that claims Ohio presents too many roadblocks to those who want to overturn bad laws has filed a challenge to the state’s referendum process.

To make its case, Woodbridge, Virginia-based Citizens in Charge says only two referendums qualified for Ohio’s ballot in the past 79 years. One is this year’s Issue 5, which seeks to overturn a law cracking down on payday lenders.
