Ohio's Attorney General has rejected petition signatures from backers of the Ohio Alternative Treatment Amendment. A thousand signatures were needed, but only 534 signatures were determined to be valid. Backers of this proposed amendment submitted more than 1,600 petition signatures. Spokesman Rob Ryan says his group thinks there might be a misunderstanding over the petition process. He says he's working to resolve that right now.
Ryan says supporters of this measure plan to figure out what's wrong with the petitions, correct the problem and submit even more petition signatures in an attempt to put the issue on the statewide ballot.
