WASHINGTON (AP) - A small-business group opposed to the health care overhaul is asking the Supreme Court to strike down the entire law, not just the core requirement to buy health insurance or pay a penalty.
The National Federation of Independent Business is filing an appeal Wednesday of a portion of the ruling by the federal appeals court in Atlanta that struck down the individual insurance requirement.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Ohio Senate has approved a bill that contains new requirements before a minor can be allowed to have an abortion without her parents agreeing to it.
Under the bill, a judge considering whether to let a girl bypass the state's parental consent requirement would have to ask if she understands the physical and emotional impacts of having an abortion. The judge also must ask the girl if she was coached on how to answer such questions.
The Senate passed the measure Tuesday on a 23-8 vote.
Police say a man suspected of fatally shooting a Central State University football player at a Dayton nightclub has turned himself in.
Police say 30-year-old Jason Shern turned himself in Tuesday. Police Sgt. Dan Mauch says an arrest warrant charging Shern with murder and felonious assault was issued last week. Court records do not list Shern's attorney.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Gov. John Kasich on Monday appointed Ohio's former elections chief to a spot on the board that oversees repairs and improvements to the state's museums, historical buildings and sports stadiums.
The Republican governor named former Democratic secretary of state and one-time U.S. Senate hopeful Jennifer Brunner to the Ohio Cultural Facilities Commission.
Brunner preceded current Secretary of State Jon Husted and was defeated in the 2010 Democratic primary where she ran for former-U.S. Sen. George Voinovich's vacant seat after his retirement.
