COLUMBUS Last spring, state Rep. Niraj Antani, R-Miamisburg, worked behind the scenes with a lending-industry lobbyist and its trade group to write a letter aimed at weakening a sweeping payday lending reform bill that was signed into law this fall.

The U.S. Department of Justice issued a subpoena to the Ohio House for public records, text messages and other correspondence related to the letter, according to the documents.
