Order Online : "The State of Ohio"
This week on "The State of Ohio": A state representative suddenly passes away, leaving lawmakers in shock. A national political party chooses Ohio for its convention - but it's probably not the party you think it is. And two groups are hoping to put two very different questions about voting laws before the voters

Each weekday, the reporters at the Statehouse News Bureau produce in-depth packages on issues of statewide interest. The Bureau has covered a variety of topics over the years, including the state's financial situation, school funding, tax hikes, reproductive issues, capital punishment, gay marriage, the carrying of concealed weapons, and tort reform.

The Bureau also covers news outside the Statehouse, to explain and explore how legislation, politics and other concerns affect Ohioans. The fight against terrorism, the state's economy, flooding, gas prices, utility rates, air and water quality, farming and rural issues, and the movement to repeal the state's penny-per-dollar state sales tax are among the stories the Bureau has been following.

The Bureau is also on top of the latest in politics and elections news. The reporters in the Bureau have been following the presidential race and this year's U.S. Senate contest, as well as proposals for constitutional amendments on gay marriage, video slot machines and the state sales tax repeal. And the Bureau has been examining the focus on Ohio as a swing state, concerns about ballot security, and the latest polling results.

Not all the news the Bureau does is hard-hitting journalism. The Bureau's reporters also are accomplished feature reporters and storytellers, turning out pieces on the state's Bicentennial, the "hidden treasures" of a former Statehouse employee, a memorial to Ohio's fallen police officers, the growing population of bald eagles, the emergence of the 17-year cicadas, a profile of former Senator and astronaut John Glenn and the battle over what should be the state fruit.

We also feature the award-winning work of other journalists from stations within the Ohio Public Radio network. Their commitment to assisting the Statehouse News Bureau in its mission makes it possible for us to bring informative and balanced news stories and outstanding features to all parts of the state.
