In a sweeping report spanning 449 pages, House Democrats lay out a detailed case for stripping Apple, Amazon, Facebook and Google of the power than has made each of them dominant in their fields.

The four companies began as "scrappy underdog startups" but are now monopolies that must be restricted and regulated, the report from Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee's antitrust panel says.

After President Trump announced that he and First Lady Melania Trump tested positive for the coronavirus, Lt. Gov. Jon Husted said he's taking a COVID-19 test as a precaution.

A central promise of last week's Republican National Convention was a pledge that President Trump would use a second term to build on elements of his first term, with very few updates and changes.

The four days of convention programming showed a Republican Party whose policies are bound to Trump. But GOP divisions over many of those policies prevented much of the 2016 Trump agenda from ever becoming law. And that dynamic was in place well before the coronavirus pandemic changed politics.

Parents waiting to learn if their child will qualify for vouchers to help cover the cost of private school are caught in limbo.

On Wednesday, the Ohio Senate rejected a House plan that would replace performance-based EdChoice vouchers with income-based vouchers. The Senate plan would keep 420 schools on EdChoice, while expanding income-based vouchers to 300 percent of the federal poverty level.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made last-minute, handwritten changes Tuesday to the parameters for how President Trump's impeachment trial process will play out. Departing from a draft resolution he released Monday night, the resolution now allows impeachment managers and the president's defense to have 24 hours to make arguments over three session days. The draft had stipulated 24 hours over two days. McConnell also altered the rules for admitting the House evidence into the record.
