The Ohio House yesterday concurred on Senate amendments to House Bill 31, sponsored by State Representative Bob Cupp (R-Lima), which eliminates from Ohio statute certain government boards that are obsolete or nonoperational, including the Government Contracting Advisory Council.

The Government Contracting Advisory Council was created in 2005 and charged with reviewing the rules of financial accountability for companies contracting with a state agency. However, no rules holding contractors financial accountable have been adopted for the council to consider, rendering the committee unnecessary, yet they legally must still hold a meeting every two years.

The bill also eliminates 11 other defunct state boards and commissions.

House Bill 31 now goes to the Governor for his consideration.
