COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio lawmakers and state Attorney General Mike DeWine are promoting legislation to stop the financial exploitation of older Ohioans.

The proposals to be discussed Thursday by DeWine and House Rep. Mike Dovilla, a Berea Republican, and Rep. Wes Retherford, a Hamilton Republican, come at a time when experts estimate as many as 2 million older Americans are abused in various ways each year.

That abuse can range from physical assault to the misuse of a person's money, property and assets.

The proposed Ohio bill would also ensure that the life savings and homes of senior citizens are protected.
