State Rep. Michael Sheehy (D-Oregon) Monday was named Transportation & Infrastructure Committee’s Ranking Member, the House Minority’s highest ranking official on the legislative panel.


“I’m eager to serve on the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee along with Chairman Boose and Vice-Chairman Green,” said Rep. Sheehy. “I look forward to working in a bipartisan fashion to bolster the bright future of Ohio’s transportation systems and infrastructure.”


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 into two separate committees and adding the Community and Family Advancement Committee.


House Democratic Leader Fred Strahorn (D-Dayton) announced today’s placements saying, "With this committee leadership in place, we have the right people in the right positions to take on the important issues facing Ohioans. These members have a strong, diverse and focused mix of talents and abilities that will contribute to a higher quality of life for everyday Ohioans. We are in a stronger position to make sure that all Ohioans can feel the promise and opportunity of our state.” 


Committee meetings are open to the public and held any time before or after House floor sessions. The full membership of committees will be announced at a later date.
