Ohio Elections Chief Breaks Tie Over Ballot Count

Ohio's elections chief has sided with fellow members of the Republican party in breaking a tie vote over counting ballots in a disputed 2010 juvenile court election.

Ohio Gov OKs Bill Ending 'Vicious' Pit Bull Label

Mojoey

Pit bulls in Ohio will no longer be labeled as "vicious" dogs under a bill that's been signed into law by Gov. John Kasich.

The governor on Tuesday signed the bill that changes a law defining a vicious dog as one that has seriously hurt or killed a person, killed another dog or is among those commonly known as pit bulls. The new measure removes the reference to pit bulls from the definition and requires evidence to prove pit bulls are actually vicious.

It also specifies that the label does not include a police dog that has injured a person or has killed another dog.
