COLUMBUS: Opponents of Ohio's new collective bargaining law say they have collected hundreds of thousands more signatures than needed so voters can weigh in on repealing the measure this fall.

We Are Ohio said Friday it has collected more than 714,000 signatures, which still must be checked by the state's election chief to ensure enough are legitimate.

The group is making a final petition push in the coming weeks. It needs more than 231,000 valid signatures by June 30 to get the issue on the November ballot.

The signatures have to be from at least 44 of the 88 counties.

The law signed by Gov. John Kasich in late March bans public employee strikes and restricts collective bargaining rights for more than 350,000 teachers, police officers, state employees and others.
