The Ohio State Constitution: A Reference Guide (Google eBook)
In 2003 Ohio celebrated its bicentennial, but most of the state's residents are unaware of the rich history and text of the state's constitution. From its precursor, the Northwest Ordinance, through three successful constitutional conventions and more than 200 proposed amendments; the Ohio Constitution is an evolving document. This work, current through the November 2004 election, is a needed resource for anyone interested in the history or text of the Ohio Constitution, or state Constitutions in general.
This work provides an introductory essay outlining the history of the Ohio State Constitution as well as a section-by-section commentary on the Constitution. Tables listing changes to the Constitution as well a complete list of all proposed amendments to the Constitution from 1851 to the present are included. Foreword by current Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice Thomas J. Moyer.
