144.06 Authorizing referendum.

The governor is empowered to authorize a referendum, and he shall authorize a referendum upon request of the governing body of a county-related corporation or city, and the governor shall designate an agency or individual to supervise its conduct, in accordance with the requirements of section 218(d)(3) of the "Social Security Act," on the question of whether service in positions covered by a retirement system established by a county-related corporation or city thereof should be excluded from or included under an agreement under Chapter 144. of the Revised Code. The notice of referendum required by section 218(d)(3)(C) of the "Social Security Act" to be given to employees shall contain or shall be accompanied by a statement, in such form and such detail as the agency or individual designated to supervise the referendum deems necessary and sufficient, to inform the employees of the rights which will accrue to them and their dependents and survivors, and the liabilities to which they will be subject, if their services are included under an agreement under Chapter 144. of the Revised Code.

Upon receiving evidence satisfactory to him that with respect to any such referendum the conditions specified in section 218(d)(3) of the "Social Security Act" have been met, the governor shall so certify to the secretary of health, education and welfare.
