Associated Press

The Associated Press is the essential global news network, delivering accurate, insightful news from every corner of the world, 24 hours a day. Since its founding in 1846, AP has been the first to report many of history’s most important moments, and every day, AP journalists, photographers and videographers file news from the front lines of the world's biggest stories. 

AP’s reporting, photography, audio and video are published and broadcast by the world’s leading newspapers, TV channels, apps, radio stations, websites and magazines—in fact, over half the world’s population sees AP news content on any given day. 

As a leader in the field of journalism, AP fights for freedom of the press and the public’s right to know. Its reporters take great risks to file in-depth stories from countries where the press is otherwise restrained, and in the U.S., AP aggressively uses the Freedom of Information Act to advocate for transparency and accountability in government.  

With more experience reporting and delivering news than any other agency, a well-earned reputation for independence and accuracy, and a fierce commitment to the people’s right to know, AP is the definitive source for trusted news.

Governor's Budget Facing Amendments

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio legislative panel is set to consider more changes to a midterm budget bill on track for a House vote this week.
   The House Finance and Appropriations Committee amended the sweeping proposal Monday to clarify college athletes are not considered employees under state law.
   The move comes after a decision last month by a regional director of the National Labor Relations Board involving the Northwestern University football team. That ruling said full scholarship players can be considered employees and thus have the right to form a union.
   The amendment was among dozens made to the bill.
   The Republican-dominated committee removed a provision to require electronic registration for unemployment compensation benefits, and it sought to penalize counties who don't follow state procedures for providing absentee ballots.

New Drug Initiative Gets Big Grant

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Twenty-two grants totaling $1.5 million will help strengthen school-based alcohol and drug prevention programs in Ohio.
   The governor's office said Monday that the Building Youth Resiliency grants will help at-risk kids in 19 counties. The program - part of Ohio's new youth drug prevention initiative called Start Talking! - targets students in 5th through 9th grades.
   Building Youth Resiliency is a partnership between the Office of the First Lady Karen Kasich, the Governor's Office of Faith-Based Initiatives and several state agencies. It is supported by federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families dollars.
   Programs were selected from a pool of 38 proposals. To be eligible, applicants were required to partner with schools where more than 40 percent of the student population qualifies for the free- and reduced- lunch program.
