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.
