Opponents of health care law continue petition drive

BOARDMAN, Ohio- Opponents of the health care reform measure approved by Congress earlier this year are gathering signatures at the Trumbull County Fair for a ballot initiative that would exempt Ohio from the legislation.

Supporters of the Ohio Health Care Freedom Amendment will not have enough signatures gathered to place the measure on the 2010 ballot, but expect to bring it to the voters in 2011.

Organizers with the Ohio Project, a grassroots organization that is opposed to the mandates included in the health care law, said they will continue to gather signatures until they reach the 600,000 necessary to place the measure on the 2011 ballot.

Since Memorial Day, the group has gathered around 100,000 signatures.

Volunteers will also collect signatures at the post offices in Niles and Girard, as well as the Warren Bureau of Motor Vehicles on Elm Road.
