Rep. Antonio To Continue Serving As Lead Health Committee Member For House Dems
Will work with colleagues to help shape public policy

State Representative Nickie Antonio (D-Lakewood) today announced that she has been selected to serve on four committees in the Ohio House – including Finance, which covers the state budget.

Antonio's committee assignments include:


-Health, highest ranking Democrat

-Finance Subcommittee on Higher Education

-Rules and Reference

“I am honored to continue to provide policy leadership in the Ohio House and look forward to working with my fellow colleagues to serve the 11 million Ohioans that count on us,” said Antonio. “As we turn our focus to the state budget over the next few months, I will urge my colleagues to prioritize spending that creates jobs to ensure a strong economy, while protecting the health and well-being of all Ohioans, especially women and mothers.”

The Finance Committee is especially important this year, as members will be asked to review and craft the state’s two-year operating budget. This legislation outlines spending for the state, including the essential services provided by Medicaid, Job and Family Services and the Environmental Protection Agency, among others.

Antonio, elected to her fourth term in November and sworn in earlier this month, previously has served on the House Finance committee and has been the highest ranking Democrat on the Health Committee for several years.
