Ohio House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger (R-Clarksville) today announced that he will be appointing Representative Tim Schaffer (R-Lancaster) to be Chairman of the influential House Ways and Means Committee for the 132nd General Assembly.

The Ways and Means Committee shapes tax policy for the State of Ohio. This is the second consecutive term in which Schaffer will serve as Chairman of this committee in the Ohio House. He previously served as Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee in the Ohio Senate for two terms. The Ohio General Assembly has approved approximately $5 billion in tax cuts for Ohioans since 2011 under Schaffer’s leadership.

“I am honored and grateful that Speaker Rosenberger has trusted me with this responsibility,” Schaffer said. “Tax cuts enacted by the Ohio General Assembly in recent years have kept more money and capital in the pockets of Ohio taxpayers, and I plan to continue to pursue pro-growth policies that create jobs and save money for Ohio’s families.”

“I have enjoyed working with Rep. Schaffer during our time together in the House, and I appreciate the dedication he has shown to promoting policies to strengthen our state’s economy,” Speaker Rosenberger said. “I have every confidence that he will continue to advocate for Ohio’s working families and business owners as chairman of the Ways & Means Committee.”

Full memberships of House committees are expected to be announced later this month.
