A proposal to abolish a key portion of the federal health-care law in Ohio has enough signatures to qualify for the Nov. 8 ballot, the secretary of state’s office says.

Secretary of State Jon Husted today certified 426,998 signatures for the constitutional amendment, which only required 385,245 valid signatures of registered Ohio voters, or 10 percent of the total vote cast for governor in 2010. Challenges have been threatened for many of the signatures, however, meaning the ballot battle may not be over.

The issue would take its place on a statewide ballot that already has two issues: a referendum on Senate Bill 5, the law slashing collective bargaining for public employees, and a proposal to increase the mandatory retirement age for judges.
Opponents of the health-care law also collected signatures equal to 5 percent of the total vote cast for governor in 2010 from at least 44 of Ohio’s 88 counties. That requirement was met in 82 counties.

The Ohio Healthcare Freedom Amendment seeks to invalidate the federal health-care mandate that requires residents to buy health insurance. The measure was supported by the state Republican Party as a possible GOP counterweight to the Democrat-backed referendum on Senate Bill 5.
