COLUMBUS—This week, Ohio Senate President Larry Obhof appointed Senator Bob Peterson (R-Washington Court House) vice chair of the Senate's influential Standing Committee on Rules and Reference. 

"I look forward to working with my colleagues on the committee to set a policy agenda that will help create opportunities for Ohio families," said Senator Peterson. 

The Rules and Reference Committee plays a key role in setting the legislative agenda for the Ohio Senate. The committee is tasked with assigning legislation to the Senate's various subject matter committees. Once a bill is favorably reported by a subject matter committee, the Rules and Reference Committee then determines if and when the bill is brought up for consideration by the full Senate.

"I value the input of each member of the Senate's Rules and Reference Committee as we work to ensure that every issue brought before us receives the most thoughtful consideration possible," said President Obhof, who will chair the committee.  

Members of the Ohio Senate Majority Caucus appointed to the Senate Standing Committee on Rules and Reference today include:

Senator Larry Obhof (R-Medina), Chair
Senator Bob Peterson (R-Washington Court House), Vice Chair
Senator Randy Gardner (R-Bowling Green)
Senator Gayle Manning (R-North Ridgeville)
Senator Scott Oelslager (R-North Canton)
Senator Dave Burke (R-Marysville)
Senator Bill Coley (R-Liberty Township)
Senator John Eklund (R-Munson Township)
Senator Cliff Hite (R-Findlay)
Senator Matt Huffman (R-Lima)
