“This is an extraordinary privilege and opportunity to serve the residents of the 26th District and the State of Ohio,” said Rep. Craig. “I look forward to working with my colleagues on proposals that strengthen our economy, enhance public safety and spur job growth. As Ranking Member on the Armed Services Committee, I will focus on improving veterans’ services and providing the essential resources our armed forces personnel and their families deserve.”

Rep. Craig will serve on the following committees:

-Armed Services, Veterans Affairs & Public Safety, Ranking Member
-Economic & Workforce Development
-Financial Institutions, Housing & Urban Development

The House of Representatives has 19 standing committees. House Republicans have slightly altered the committee structure for the 131st General Assembly, splitting state and local government and agriculture and natural resources into separate committees and adding the Community and Family Advancement Committee.

Committee meetings are crucial to the formation of laws; legislative proposals must be vetted through the committee process before full consideration by the House, allowing opponents and proponents to present testimony and voice opinions and creating the opportunity for alterations and improvements to legislation. Committees are open to the public and held any time before or after House floor sessions.
