Election Notes:
  • Proposed by Initiative Petition To amend Sections 1531.01 and 1531.02 of the Ohio Revised Code to prohibit the hunting or taking of mourning doves in Ohio. The proposed law would: 1. Amend Section 1531.01(S) of the Ohio Revised Code by removing the words “mourning doves” from the definition of "Game birds." 2. Amend Section 1531.01 of the Ohio Revised Code by removing the final sentence of that section which states: “The chief shall not establish a season for the hunting of mourning doves that opens prior to the fifteenth day of September of any year.” 3. Amend Section 1531.02 of the Revised Code by adding the words "NO PERSON SHALL HUNT OR TAKE A MOURNING DOVE." If adopted, this law as amended would be effective on December 3, 1998. A majority yes vote is necessary for passage.
