“Kasich’s signing of election law ‘repeal’ doesn’t end debate”

Cincinnati Enquirer: “The gambit, apparently the first time that Ohio legislators have ever effectively killed a referendum destined for voters, sets up a possible lawsuit over a question that could impact this fall’s election: May state legislators repeal a bill that has not yet taken effect and that is up for referendum? Democrats argue the answer is no. They and voting rights advocates complain that Senate Bill 295 isn’t a true repeal but a poison pill – because it restricts early voting by not allowing Ohioans to cast ballots at boards of elections on the three days before Nov. 6.”
