Ingram To Serve On Ohio House Legislative Panels
Will work with colleagues to help shape public policy
 
 

State Rep. Catherine D. Ingram (D-Cincinnati) today announced the committees on which she will serve to help shape and refine public policy during the 132nd General Assembly. 


“I am eager to begin work on my committees to help improve the quality of life for Ohio families,” said Ingram. “I hope to bring my experience in advocacy, community development and planning in the Cincinnati community to enact commonsense policy that is good for citizens of the 32nd House district and all Ohioans.” 


Ingram will serve on the following committees: 


-Education and Career Readiness
-Financial Institutions, Housing and Urban Development
-Higher Education and Workforce Development 


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. 


Ingram, elected to her first term in November and sworn in earlier this month, was previously a member of the Cincinnati Board of Education for over 20 years, serving as president and vice president in the mid-90’s. As an active member of the community, Ingram has served on the boards of the United Way/Community Chest; Leadership Cincinnati XX; Great Rivers Girl Scout Council; Greater Cincinnati Black Achiever Award program; Mayerson Human Resource Academy; and Cincinnati Recreation Commission.
