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.

County Prosecutor requested review after appeals court reduced sentence

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A committee evaluating the future of Ohio's alternative-energy standards is continuing to gather testimony from experts.

The Energy Mandates Study Committee meets again Thursday.

The panel was created last year as part of compromise legislation that froze rollout for two years of state thresholds for alternative and renewable energy sources, such as wind, solar, and clean coal.

The committee, comprised of state lawmakers and the state's top utility regulator, is re-evaluating impacts of a 2008 law that required 25 percent of Ohio's energy to come from alternative sources by 2025.

Opponents wanted the mandates repealed, while supporters wanted them continued. The compromise restarts the phase-in schedule in 2017 unless legislators take different action.

Thursday's witnesses include Charles Goldman of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and Gary Swanson of Energy Management Solutions.
