Referendum is Go for Launch

The Secretary of State, John Husted, has certified that enough valid signatures have been collected to allow the full repeal effort of SB5 to begin. The Dispatch via Twitter informs us that "SoS Husted says 2,506 of 2,835 valid (88 percent)".

Furthermore the Attorney General, Mike DeWine, has certified the short referendum language. The long referendum language was rejected as being too long.

The effort to collect signatures to place the SB5 repeal on the ballot is now clear to take place.
