DeWine vetoed a measure on Friday, Dec. 29, 2023, in Columbus that would have banned gender-affirming care for minors and transgender athletes’ participation in girls and women’s sports, in a break from members of his party who championed the legislation.

When Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine vetoed a bill that would restrict medical care for transgender minors, Republican lawmakers vowed it wasn't the last word. On Wednesday, the House made good on that promise, overriding his veto. On Cincinnati Edition, we discuss the next move for House Bill 68.

In Kentucky, a Democratic lawmaker has introduced a bill to add exceptions to the state's abortion ban for cases of rape or incest. "Hadley’s Law" is named after an Owensboro woman who was raped and impregnated by her stepfather as a child and became an important voice of Gov. Andy Beshear's reelection campaign. But does the bill have a chance of passing the Republican-controlled legislature?

Plus, the list has narrowed on who will oversee $1.6 billion from the sale of the Cincinnati railway. We take a look at the contenders.
