Ryan named House Finance Committee chair

COLUMBUS – Former Licking County Treasurer and now State Representative Scott Ryan was named the chair of the powerful House Finance Committee for the remainder of the 132nd General Assembly.

Ryan, who was a sub-committee chair on the committee, replaces State Representative Ryan Smith of Bidwell who was elected Speaker of the House last week. The Finance Committee’s clout stems from its prominent role in crafting the state’s biennial budget.

“I’ve had the opportunity to work with Representative Ryan as he served as vice chair of the Finance Committee during the last budget cycle,” said Smith. “During that time, I have seen first-hand that he possesses the knowledge, leadership and patience needed to oversee the important work of the committee. I look forward to continuing our work together as we address the many critical issues facing the people of Ohio.”
