Agency Reports Submitted to the General Assembly

Section 101.68(B) of the Revised Code requires that when annual or other types of reports are to be submitted to the General Assembly, it is sufficient for copies of the reports to be submitted to the Director of the Legislative Service Commission (LSC). The Director is then to inform each member of the General Assembly of the content and form of the report as well as the cost of its preparation and the number of copies printed. Submission of reports to LSC eliminates the need to send reports to each member of the General Assembly.

As required under section 101.68(C), below is the annotated bibliography of documents recently received. In addition, the bibliography includes other documents that may be of interest to legislators. Electronic copies of the documents also are included if available; click "View Report" to open a document. Please call the LSC Library at (614) 466-5312 to borrow a copy of any of the reports that are not available in an electronic format, or visit the Library on the 9th floor of the Riffe Center. New lists will be sent to you as the arrival of documents warrants.
