A new report says there's been a surge in the number of Ohio children growing up in poor neighborhoods. A Kids Count Data Snapshot from the Annie E. Casey Foundation released today (Thursday) shows the number of Ohio children living in high-poverty communities has increased by 60-percent over the last decade.
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.
