Signs of forthcoming security changes are starting to show up at the Ohio Statehouse.
The Columbus Dispatch reports one entrance has been closed. Signs have been posted at new desks at other entrances where the patrol is expected next month to begin searching packages that visitors bring with them.
House Speaker William Batchelder says cameras are being upgraded around the building, and one is being added outside the House chamber.
The Senate plans to restrict access to certain chamber entrances and the Senate president's office.
