Health care nullification not on November ballot

The Columbus Dispatch reported today that The Ohio Project's petitions for an Ohio Constitutional amendment to nullify federal law mandating participation in the federal health care program, will not appear in this November's ballot; however backers are confident that it will be ready to submit for the November 2011 election. The petition needs approximately 400,000 valid signatures to qualify for the ballot.

I am still not really sure the legal benefit or argument for how nullification works.

That said, I signed a similar petition. While I disagree with it, it deserves to be voted on

there wasn't enough time to get it done before the cutoff... i guess next year they'll have to start over?

They will not have to start over, but a few of the signatures will become invalid due to failure to vote within the last four years, or possibly due to death.
