Gay marriage supporters on Monday resubmitted a petition that seeks to repeal Ohio's gay marriage ban after a first attempt was rejected.

The group Freedom to Marry Ohio filed a new summary of the proposal along with more than 2,380 signatures to Attorney General Mike DeWine's office.

On March 1, the group submitted nearly 1,800 signatures to DeWine, the first step in putting the issue back on the ballot next fall.

DeWine said that petitioners had submitted more than the required 1,000 valid signatures but he found three defects with the summary language, including a summary which was longer than the amendment itself.

He also noted that two provisions stated in the summary were not addressed in the amendment.

Ian James of Freedom to Marry Ohio told The Gay People's Chronicle “[W]e expected the AG rejection and drafted a revised summary petition. The issue of brevity, Title 31 and the individual recognition have been addressed.”

If DeWine approves the proposal, the group can begin gathering the roughly 385,000 signatures needed to put the item on the ballot.

Ohio's largest gay rights advocate, Equality Ohio, has yet to endorse the effort.
