Statement from Secretary of State Jon Husted on Repeal of House Bill 194

COLUMBUS – The following statement may be attributed to Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted regarding the passage of Senate Bill 295, which repeals the election reform law House Bill 194:

“Today’s action by the legislature means that Ohio’s election law is no longer in limbo and the potential for unnecessary voter confusion has been eliminated.

“Referendums determine if laws passed by the legislature should be upheld. With the law at the heart of the referendum on HB 194 having been repealed, there is no longer a question to place before the voters, and taxpayers will save more than $1 million in the process.”
