State Rep. Joe Miller (D-Amherst) today announced the installation of cameras in four additional House hearing rooms, signaling the completion of a major project to offer live coverage of all House committee meetings for the first time, fulfilling a long-time Democratic priority of a more open and transparent committee process.

“Transparency is the cornerstone of a healthy, productive democratic process,” said Rep. Miller. “I am a firm believer that making government more accessible to the public leads to better outcomes for the people of Ohio.”

For years, Democratic lawmakers pushed for increased video access throughout the Ohio Statehouse in an effort to increase government transparency, and until this year, had not seen any movement in the Republican-controlled chamber.
