Columbus, Ohio (AP) -- Under a new law, Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray is following up with thousands of companies that received state money in exchange for job promises.

Cordray is sending letters to recipients of development funds asking that they fill out an online report within 30 days to show evidence that they are indeed creating or retaining jobs.

The attorney general says a law passed by the general assembly requires his office to monitor whether businesses are using tax dollars as intended.

The letters are going to 3,000 companies that got state aid from July of 2004 through June of this year.
