Ohio: Court says health care ballot measure can be single subject

Fri, Apr 30 2010 — Source: The Columbus Dispatch

A proposed Ohio constitutional amendment in response to the federal health-care overhaul must be treated as a single issue and not two, the Ohio Supreme Court ruled yesterday. The ruling will give proponents of the measure the green light to collect signatures to put the issue on the statewide ballot. The proposal would prohibit requiring Ohioans to participate in a health-care system and buy health insurance.
