State Rep. and Assistant Democratic Leader Nick Celebrezze (D-Parma) today announced the committees on which he will serve to help shape and refine public policy during the 132nd General Assembly.

“On behalf of all the citizens of Ohio, I am eager to work together to get back to the business of creating opportunity and moving our state forward,” said Celebrezze. “Safety and equal opportunity for everyone are my top priorities. I will continue to listen to concerned citizens offer testimony on legislation that directly impacts them and their loved ones with an open mind and heart.”

Celebrezze will serve on the following committees:

-Rules and Reference

-Civil Justice

-Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board (CSRAB) 

-Ohio Fatherhood Commission

The House of Representatives has 21 standing committees now after House Republicans slightly altered the committee structure for the 132nd General Assembly. The Judiciary Committee was split into two separate Criminal and Civil Justice Committees, committees on state and local government were consolidated, and several new committees – including Aging & Long-Term Care and Federalism & Interstate Relations – were established, among other changes.

Committees are held any time before or after House floor sessions and are open to the public. House Finance Committee is generally broadcast live on the internet. The Ohio Senate recently announced they would begin to livestream additional standing committees, but the House has not yet indicated whether it will follow suit.

Celebrezze, elected to his third term in November, was also elected as Assistant Minority Leader of the Ohio House Democratic Caucus for his second term.

“I am so humbled and honored to once again serve as Assistant Leader for this group of such hard working public servants who put the needs of their constituents above all else. I believe that by working together on important issues such as public safety and overcoming the opioid crisis, we can create a path toward success for all Ohioans.”
