Welcome to the official website for the Ohio House of Representatives. We hope you will find this site to be a helpful entry point into the many facets of the "People's House". You can find information about the history and ongoing work of the State Legislature - all from the comfort of your own home!

For more than 200 years, Ohioans have voiced their opinions through the members of the Ohio House of Representatives. The traditions of our state through common sense, hard work and persistence, serve as the foundation for our progress and development, and encourage a citizenry dedicated to protecting and improving our communities.

Whether you are a resident of Ohio or are merely passing through, you more than likely have been affected by the actions of a president, soldier, artist, or inventor of our great state. Today, we build upon the work of these and other great Ohioans and strive to shape a future of hope, opportunity, and prosperity for generations to come.

It is a privilege to represent you and our great state in the Ohio Legislature. I invite you to take a closer look at the Ohio House and the work we do here each and every day on behalf of you and your family.

William G. Batchelder
Speaker of the Ohio House of Representatives
