Ohio House Selects New Chairs For Three Committees
Speaker Larry Householder appointed three new committee chairs on Oct. 3 following a series of member departures.
The chairman appointments are:
- Rep. Scott Lipps (R-Franklin), Health Committee.
- Rep. Derek Merrin (R-Monclova), Ways & Means.
- Rep. Tim Ginter (R-Salem), Aging & Long-term Care.
House leaders will have yet another vacant committee chair position in the coming weeks with the pending departure of Rep. Louis Blessing (R-Cincinnati). The lawmaker, who currently chairs the House Primary & Secondary Education Committee, was tabbed for a Senate vacancy earlier this week.
