INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A small but determined group of state lawmakers from some 30 states gathered in Indiana Thursday to lay the groundwork for something that has not happened since 1787 in Philadelphia: a convention to revise the U.S. Constitution.

The bar they would have to clear -- winning approval from 34 state legislatures -- seems impossibly high, but the group of roughly 100 legislators, most of them Republicans, is pressing on.

Fueling them is a firm belief that the federal government is increasingly overstepping its bounds and has forgotten that it was the states which gave it life at the birth of the United States, not the other way around.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio's Democratic Party chairman criticized how the lieutenant governor has handled two staffers' resignations, claiming Thursday that relying on the state's inspector general, who used to work for her, was not the best response.

Republican Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor's chief of staff and the administrative assistant to the chief of staff resigned last week after irregularities were found in their timesheets.

Taylor's office discovered the timesheet problems while responding to a public records request made in April by the Democratic-leaning blog Plunderbund. The blog asked for payroll records, timesheets and parking logs.

The documents showed the two women's reported working hours and their parking garage and building entry logs did not match, according to Taylor's office.

Taylor referred the matter to the state's inspector general and the State Highway Patrol to review.
