Too Much Democracy in Ohio?

The Sound of Ideas

Ohio's current constitution has been amended 118 times since 1912. It's a process that has brought Ohio everything from term limits and a gay marriage ban to casinos and allowing the sale of colored margarine (1949). State Representative John Domenick says this ballot box legislating is getting out of control. He's proposing future amendments require approval from two-thirds of voters instead of a simple majority. That, he says, would help Ohio avoid the fate of states such as California, that many describe as "ungovernable." Wednesday morning at 9, join host Dan Moulthrop to examine whether constitutional amendments are just too much democracy.
