U.S District Court Refers Questions to the Ohio Supreme Court

Declines to Issue Extension

In response to the ruling issued today in U.S. District Court, which referred the central questions of the case to the Ohio Supreme Court, Ohioans Against Corporate Bailouts issued the following statement:

“We look forward to making our case to the Ohio Supreme Court that the petitioning ‘blackout’ period is an unfair infringement on our constitutional right to referendum,” said Gene Pierce, spokesman for Ohioans Against Corporate Bailouts. “Ohioans deserve the opportunity to vote on House Bill 6, and the despicable campaign by supporters of the bill to prevent that should not be rewarded.”
