The Ohio Project, a statewide ballot initiative petition aimed at stopping forced healthcare, has been put forth by The Ohio Liberty Council, a statewide coalition of 40 grassroots groups. The petition currently being circulated is a proposed state constitutional amendment that will “preserve the freedom of Ohioans to choose their health care and health care coverage.” The amendment, drafted by the 1851 Center for Constitutional Law, would protect Ohioans from the fines, taxes, and individual mandates contained in the new federal health care measure passed by Congress. Ohio's filing by the Ohio Liberty Council is the nation’s first citizen-initiated action.

“The Ohio Liberty Council seeks to preserve the freedom of Ohioans to choose their health care and health care coverage,” said Ohio Liberty Council President Chris Littleton. “With the passage of untenable national mandates on health insurance, the federal government is trampling on the direct constitutional authority and responsibility of state legislatures. This constitutional amendment will do what our leaders in the Statehouse and Congress have failed to do – protect Ohioans from federal mandates on personal behavior.”
Currently, 600,000 petition signatures are needed statewide by June 30 in order for the proposed state constitutional amendment to be placed on November’s ballot. Clark County’s goal is 7,000 signatures by June 28. “This is a formidable but attainable goal if we all work together to get it done. We need the help of local businesses, churches and civic organizations to make this happen,” says Laura Rosenberger, Clark County Coordinator for The Ohio Project.

There are several signing locations in Clark County where you can sign the petition. They are Jeff’s Automotive, 316 S. Church St., New Carlisle; Butts and Barrels Gun Shop, 1357 W. First Street, Spfld.; 41st Tanning Company, 2431 Troy Road, German Twshp; Tan Lines, 2107 E. Home Rd.; Touch of Tropical, 764 N. Belmont; Northern Exposure, 1415 Moorefield Rd.; Lectrasun, 2866 E. High Street; Panache, 115 S. Burnett and Bryce Hill, 2301 Sheridan Ave.(all Spfld.).
