COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio's governor has signed into law a proposal that take steps to limit the growth of the Medicaid program.

The measure was among a dozen bills signed last week by Gov. John Kasich. The legislation also creates a joint committee to oversee the federal-state health program for the poor and disabled. Lawmakers on the panel would work with an actuary to analyze Medicaid's costs.

Kasich also signed into law new requirements that state agencies share data with the secretary of state to help maintain Ohio's voter records. For instance, the state's health director would have to file monthly reports concerning voters who have died. It also reduces the minimum number of electronic voting machines a county must have by changing the formula used to calculate it.
