Ohio SB 193, the bill that would remove the Constitution, Green, Libertarian, and Socialist Parties from the 2014 ballot, passed the State Senate on October 8, the same day it had passed the Senate Committee. However, the House does not appear to be eager to rush the bill. It seems unlikely that the bill will move ahead in the House, either this week or next week.
The longer the delay, the stronger the due process argument becomes. The due process argument is that it is unfair to impose a severe petition burden so late in the petitioning season. If the bill had been in effect after the November 2012 election, the parties could have started working then on getting the needed 56,000 signatures for 2014. Imposing the petition requirement in November 2013 would mean that an entire year of the 2014 petitioning period would have been unavailable.
