Vice President Mike Pence is headed to Ohio to headline a fundraiser for the oil-and-gas industry

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Vice President Mike Pence is headed to Ohio to headline a fundraiser for the oil-and-gas industry.

The Republican vice president is to appear Friday at the annual meeting of the Ohio Oil and Gas Association, a trade association for companies that explore, produce and develop crude oil and natural gas resources within the state. The event is being held at a hotel in north Columbus.

An AP analysis found relaxing those regulations also would increase premature deaths and illnesses from air pollution and increase climate-warming emissions, among other impacts.
