Ohio Department of Aging Legislative Review

RULE PROPOSALS currently under the review of the Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review

ODA files a rule proposal with the Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review (JCARR) to begin the legislature's rule-review process. The process requires ODA to conduct a public hearing 31 to 40 days after the original file date. Generally, 41-65 days after the original file date, JCARR schedules ODA to appear before a meeting concerning the rule proposal.
