The debate over Issue 2 stirred a fight over the rising cost of drug prices and if the proposal would actually bring those prices down. It was a fight that ultimately became the most expensive ballot campaign in Ohio history.
Issue 2 on this November’s statewide ballot would make it harder for any group to create a new tax rate or monopoly through the constitution, but opponents say it puts up too many hurdles between citizens and the ballot.
The group that’s backing a proposed change to Ohio’s constitution over redistricting is putting ads on the air statewide…..three weeks after the group opposing the change first put their spots out. Ohio Public Radio’s Jo Ingles reports.
The Ohio elections commission has now approved a settlement between backers of the group pushing the redistricting issue on the November ballot, the Ohio Republican Party, and another opposition group.
