Advocates say time is running out for lawmakers to overhaul the way congressional districts are drawn in Ohio.  

The left-leaning government watchdog group Common Cause Ohio and other voter groups are calling on the legislature to put something on the ballot that would change the congressional redistricting process.

 Two bills that would make more campaign finance reports available online are drawing praise from a public watchdog group.

Common Cause Ohio's Catherine Turcer says the bills would make campaign finance for local races more transparent.

“The local information is ... in file cabinets, so it’s all paper. What we need is access to this information online in a way that we can sort it and reporters can look at information more closely.”
