Columbus artist Jenny Fine says her camera has become a tool for facilitating intimacy between herself and her family, and nowhere is that more evident than in her “Flat Granny” series, soon to be on view at the Dublin Arts Council. The artist photographed her grandmother during the last ten years of her life.
Ohio Senate Wants Welfare Tied To Clean Drug Tests
The Republican-controlled Ohio Senate is nearing approval of a pilot program that would tie welfare benefits to clean drug tests.
The Senate Finance Committee set a Tuesday vote on a provision allowing three Ohio counties to volunteer to administer drug tests to prospective welfare recipients. Those who failed would get treatment and lose benefits for six months or more.
Its author says the provision’s wording avoids legal roadblocks encountered in other states. It’s among dozens of Senate changes to a midterm budget bill to be voted on Wednesday.
The think tank group Innovation Ohio says a recent constitutional amendment in Ohio against federal health care mandates prohibits mandatory government programs that collect health care data.
