State Rep. John Boccieri (D-Poland) was officially appointed to the Ohio House Energy and Natural Resources Committee and the House Public Utilities Committee late Tuesday during legislative session. The committee assignments come about two months after his September 30 swearing in as Representative for the 59th House District.


“Both of my committees deal with issues that have a significant impact on consumer welfare and the economic future of our state,” Rep. Boccieri said. “I am excited to begin the important work of hearing legislation in these areas.”


The Energy and Natural Resources Committee has been considering several resolutions on federal environmental policy of late, including one opposing the recent U.S. Environment Protection Agency’s clean water rule and one urging Congress to lift the ban on U.S. crude oil exports.


The Public Utilities Committee is currently hearing legislation on wind farms and the energy project tax exemptions.
