COLUMBUS—Speaker of the Ohio House William G. Batchelder (R-Medina) appointed State Representative Jim Buchy (R-Greenville) to serve as vice chair of the Policy and Legislative Oversight Committee.
In addition, Rep. Buchy will serve as a member of the Agriculture and Natural Resources committee along with the Rules and Reference Committee.
“These committees provide the best position to represent the people of west central Ohio,” said Rep. Buchy. “Serving the number one agricultural district in the state, I will be able to fight for issues important to agriculture and keep a watchful eye on the performance of our government agencies in this great state.”
Rep. Buchy was appointed to the Ohio House in 2011 after previously serving from 1983-2000. He represents the 84th House District, which includes Mercer County, as well as parts of Auglaize, Darke and Shelby counties.
