State Rep. Adam Miller (D-Columbus) today announced the committees on which he will serve to help shape and refine public policy during the 132nd General Assembly.  


“I am tremendously humbled and honored to serve on these impactful committees. I'm especially looking forward to working with all of my colleagues to help make Ohio's education system second-to-none and to provide a continuity of service for veterans and military families that sets the pace for our great nation,” said Miller, a combat veteran who served in Afghanistan with the 10th Mountain Division in 2004. “In addition, serving on the Federalism and Interstate Relations Committee gives me an opportunity to leverage best practices and build on relationships forged with fellow service members over the past 20 years in the United States military.”


Miller will serve on the following committees:


-Finance


-Finance Subcommittee on Primary and Secondary Education, ranking member


-Armed Services, Veterans Affairs and Homeland Security


-Federalism and Interstate Relations


-Public Utilities


The House of Representatives has 21 standing committees now after House Republicans slightly altered the committee structure for the 132nd General Assembly. The Judiciary Committee was split into two separate Criminal and Civil Justice Committees, committees on state and local government were consolidated, and several new committees – including Aging & Long-Term Care and Federalism & Interstate Relations – were established, among other changes.


Committees are held any time before or after House floor sessions and are open to the public. House Finance Committee is generally broadcast live on the internet. The Ohio Senate recently announced they would begin to livestream additional standing committees, but the House has not yet indicated whether it will follow suit.


Miller, elected to his first term in November and sworn in earlier this month, is a partner at Taft, Stettinius & Hollister. Miller is also a lieutenant colonel with over 20 years of service in the U.S. Army Reserve, serving as Judge Advocate General (JAG) Corps officer. 


The newly-elected lawmaker is active in the community and his profession, serving on a number of boards, associations and groups. He is a fourth generation Hilltop native and currently resides in the Grandview City School District with his wife, Helen, and teenage son, Christopher.
