“Ohio’s constitution has been far too susceptible to efforts by outside groups and special interests seeking to alter the people’s constitution to achieve their own ends,” Republican state representative Brian Stewart said, according to The Columbus Dispatch. With the backing of Frank LaRose, the Republican Ohio secretary of state, Stewart has introduced a resolution that would require a supermajority of Ohioans, 60%—as opposed to the current threshold of 50% plus one vote—to change the state constitution.

Oh, you mean no "outside influences" but the Koch brothers' ALEC and other corporate bullshit legislation? Can't have the people decide what they want their government to be, just the GQP's corporate and special interest overlords.
