Weekly reporter roundtable

Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose (R), proposes new rule for constitutional amendments.

Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose and others are at work on a plan to make it harder for voters to amend the state constitution.

The move comes as advocates for legal abortion access and redistricting reforms prepare their own campaigns in coming months.

The proposal would require at least 60% of voters to enact citizen-led amendments, instead of a simple majority of 50% plus one vote. It is a so-called proposed amendment, which requires voter approval.

The change would not apply to the state's initiated statute process, that is amendments put forward by the Ohio General Assembly.

We talk about this and more on our weekly reporter roundtable.
