COLUMBUS—State Rep. Jessica E. Miranda (D-Forest Park) released the following statement today on her committee assignments for the 134th General Assembly:
“I’m grateful to be assigned to a number of committees that deal with a broad range of issues facing Ohioans,” said Rep. Miranda. “Committees provide for a robust public forum on legislation, and I’m eager to work with my colleagues to tackle the many proposals that come before us.”
Rep. Miranda will serve on the following committees:
Insurance, serving as the Ranking Member;
Economic and Workforce Development;
Transportation and Public Safety;
Technology and Innovation.
As a former school board president and current small business owner providing insurance and tax services to middle and working class families, Rep. Miranda will bring a valuable perspective to these committees.
Rep. Miranda is also serving as a board member of the Ohio Latino Affairs Commission.
Committee meetings are crucial to the formation of laws. All bills must have at least two hearings in committee to allow opponents and proponents to present testimony and voice opinions on potential changes to bills before they are considered by the full House.
Committees are open to the public and held any time before or after House floor sessions. The public can watch committees live by going to www.ohiohouse.gov or www.ohiochannel.org.
