COLUMBUS (AP) — Voters will have the chance to decide in May whether to renew a public works program that funds repairs and upgrades to roads, bridges and other local infrastructure needs.

The ballot issue would allow the state to borrow $1.875 billion over 10 years through the issuance of general obligation bonds. The Ohio Public Works Commission would use the money to provide grants and loans to local governments for capital improvement projects. Those could include updates to roadways, wastewater treatment systems and sanitary collection.

WASHINGTON — The Senate voted 59-38 Monday to resurrect federal jobless benefits for the long-term unemployed, and a small band of Republican supporters swiftly appealed to a reluctant Speaker John Boehner to permit election-year action in the House as well.
