The language for a proposed ballot initiative aimed at overturning Ohio’s constitutional ban on same-sex marriage has been approved by the state’s Attorney General Mike DeWine. The AP reports: The amendment language approved by DeWine Monday would also keep clergy from being forced to perform a same-sex marriage. The language goes next to the state ballot board for review. The group FreedomOhio is seeking to repeal and replace Ohio’s 2004 prohibition on gay marriage.
The measure could reach the ballot as early as this November.
