Ohio bill would allow recall of governor, lawmakers

COLUMBUS, Ohio (Reuters) - Ohio Democratic legislators are proposing a bill that would allow voters to recall Governor John Kasich, who has signed a controversial bill limiting collective bargaining for public workers.

State Representative John Hagen said voters in 17 states, including Wisconsin, where a similar bill was passed, can recall their governors or state legislators.

Hagen's bill would allow Ohio voters to undertake a recall effort if they gather petition signatures of voters equal to 15 percent of the total votes for governor or in a particular legislative district in the last election.

Great initiative but unfortunately I doubt that Kasich will ever sign this into law. Perhaps they can make it a referendum on their next election?

1. Kasich won't have to veto it... it'll never get to his desk
Republicans have better than a 2-1 majority in the state Senate and better than 60% of the House seats. It'll never reach the gov.
