OHIO (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Union supporters are fighting back against state lawmakers in Ohio.

There's a major push to overturn Ohio’s new collective bargaining law.

Ohio Attorney General, Mike DeWine, says it's his job to the give Ohio’s Governor legal advice.

His office has the job of making sure the language of any petition, is not misleading and easy to understand.

DeWine says, “We went with the more concise one. That is now out and the people who are opposed to this collective bargaining are gathering signatures. I would fully expect to be able to get enough signatures to get it on the ballot. It will be on the ballot this fall.”

Opponents need to collect more than 231,000 signatures, within the next three months, to get a referendum on the November ballot.
