Jurors found former Ohio House speaker Larry Householder and ex-Ohio Republican Party chair Matt Borges guilty of racketeering in federal court in Cincinnati on Thursday.

Ohio lawmakers are once again looking to ban transgender athletes from participating in girls' sports. House Bill 6 got its first hearing this week after a similar bill failed twice in the last General Assembly. We'll look at the proposal, which no longer includes controversial language on genital exams, and why some worry the exams still could be performed.
