Speaker of the Ohio House of Representatives Clifford A. Rosenberger (R-Clarksville) appointed Rep. Tim Schaffer (R-Lancaster) to serve as Chairman of the House Public Utilities Committee.


“I am humbled that Speaker Rosenberger has approached me to serve in this capacity,” Schaffer said. “This is an exciting new opportunity to serve my constituents by working on public utilities issues, which is a subject area that greatly impacts all Ohioans. I look forward to working with Vice-Chair Kristina Daley Roegner, Ranking Member Mike Ashford, and the rest of our committee to craft strong public utility policy in order to make Ohio a better place to live, build a business, and raise a family.”


Schaffer was sworn in to the Ohio House last week, after serving in the Ohio Senate for eight years, where he most recently served as the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Ways and Means. He previously served in the Ohio House from 2001 to 2006.


Schaffer represents the 77th District in Fairfield County, including Pickerington, Lancaster, Baltimore, Millersport, Pleasantville, Thurston, Rushville and West Rushville.
