State ex rel. Walker v. Husted, Slip Opinion No. 2015-Ohio-3749.  In determining whether a petition to adopt a county charter can be placed on the ballot, the Secretary of State may not deny the petition because it believes provisions of the charters would violate the Ohio Constitution by unconstitutionally interfering with the state’s exclusive authority to regulate oil and gas operations.  The Secretary of State can hold petitions invalid because they do not meet the threshold requirements of a charter initiative set out in Article X, Section 3 of the Ohio Constitution.  Docket.
