COLUMBUS - 

Speaker of the Ohio House Clifford A. Rosenberger (R-Clarksville) today announced that two House standing committees will be touring the state to discuss various issues important to Ohioans.


The committee on Agriculture & Rural Development, chaired by State Representative Brian Hill (R-Zanesville), will focus on modern-day agriculture and how it is shaping rural communities in the state. The Community & Family Advancement Committee, chaired by Rep. Tim Derickson (R-Oxford), will examine poverty in Ohio along with workforce development programs designed to help Ohioans out of poverty and into jobs.


“It’s crucial we continue our legislative work over the summer and get out into the communities we serve to better understand issues that impact our constituents,” Speaker Rosenberger said. “As with previous summer committees, these hearings will allow us opportunities to make recommendations and take legislative action on issues affecting Ohioans every day.”


Speaker Rosenberger also announced that a new summer committee has been created to study healthcare efficiencies in the state. The Ohio House Healthcare Efficiencies Summer Study Committee, chaired by Rep. Stephen Huffman (R-Tipp City), will focus on Ohio’s healthcare system and how to provide the best possible outcomes for patients.


“I’m looking forward to seeing what the new Healthcare Efficiencies Study Committee can accomplish this summer,” Speaker Rosenberger said. “It’s an important issue to every Ohioan and continuing discussion on the topic of healthcare costs and transparency can ensure a better future for our state.”


These committees will hold a series of hearings across the state during August and September to gather information from citizens and experts to assist in formulating a final report and possible legislative recommendations.


Further details on the membership, agenda and locations for the summer traveling committees will be released in the near future.
