Groups Sue Over Husted's Decision To Reject Anti-Fracking Ballot Measures

Environmentalists in Fulton, Medina and Athens counties are suing Republican Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted after he invalidated ballot proposals that would ban fracking. The Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund helped the residents file suit challenging Husted's decision to remove the bans from local ballots this fall. Husted said each proposal tried to circumvent state law.  The suit alleges he violated residents' guaranteed right to initiative.
