Our amendment protects the fundamental right for Ohioans 21-year-of age to participate in a fair and open process for determining business licensing structures. We intend to collect signatures for a citizen-initiated statute to fill in regulations for business licensing that promote small businesses — we guaranteed this by ensuring the right to equal access, ownership, and employment for all Ohioans.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the case with other initiatives, where carve-outs are given to special interests, licenses are limited or priced in such a way, that most are unattainable for the average Ohioan.
That won’t be the case with Grassroots Ohioans, however: Our vision is equal access for all and everyone will have a seat at the table.
This is what rights-based is all about! That’s what Grassroots Ohioans is all about!
