The Ohio Constitutional Modernization Commission’s (OCMC) Judicial Branch and Administration of Justice Committee voted yesterday to recommend repealing two sections of the Ohio Constitution which are no longer used:

  • Article IV, Section 19 – Courts of Conciliation  (It has never been used and not needed as an alternative dispute resolution mechanism.)
  • Article IV, Section 22 – Allows the governor to create a commission that would take on the Ohio Supreme Court’s backlog of cases.  (The section has not been used since 1885 and is not needed.)
