Speaker of the Ohio House Clifford A. Rosenberger (R-Clarksville) today released a statement regarding the introduction of House Joint Resolution 4, which calls for a constitutional amendment to be placed on the ballot for this year’s general election that would prohibit monopolies to be granted through constitutional amendments.

“I want to thank Representatives Ryan Smith and Mike Curtin for their work on this anti-special interest amendment,” Speaker Rosenberger said. “It is important that we defend the State of Ohio and its people from constitutional monopolies that would only benefit a handful of people. We have a duty to uphold and protect the Ohio Constitution. I look forward to continuing work on this issue with the Ohio Senate and other state leaders so that we can ensure that our Constitution is not abused.”

H.J.R. 4 received sponsor testimony today in the House Government Accountability and Oversight Committee.
