Synopsis of Senate Committee Amendments

Legislative Service Commission

Am. H.B. 455
124th General Assembly
(S. Agriculture)

Adds a provision regarding the continuation of an agricultural commodity marketing program that requires the Director of Agriculture to hold a hearing in accordance with specified public notice and hearing procedures in the Administrative Procedure Act rather than hold a hearing generally as prescribed in that Act, and adds a requirement that the Director file a copy of the public notice with the Director of the Legislative Service Commission for publication in the Register of Ohio.

Authorizes the Director of Agriculture, following a recommendation from him to continue or terminate the program, to give whatever other notice he reasonably considers necessary to ensure that notice is constructively given to all persons who are affected by the program.
