An Ohio native has been confirmed as the next commander of the Air Force Materiel Command, making her the first woman to become a four-star general in the Air Force.
The Columbus Dispatch reports the U.S. Senate confirmed Lt. Gen. Janet Wolfenbarger this week to lead the command at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton. She was nominated by President Barack Obama in February.
A proposal that would allow Ohio businesses to make a "cure" offer when sued for unfairness or deception is headed to the governor's desk over the objections of Democrats.
The bill includes what's referred to as a "right to cure" provision backed by several business groups, including auto dealers. The Columbus Dispatch reports the Ohio House on Tuesday voted 56-35 to accept changes the Senate made to an earlier version of the bill. It now goes to Republican Gov. John Kasich, who's expected to sign it.
