Statehouse - 

Ohio Senate President Keith Faber today named State Senator Joe Uecker to serve as the Vice Chairman of the Senate Standing Committee on State Government Oversight and Reform. As a member of the House of Representatives, Uecker served as the Chairman of the House Standing Committee on Commerce and Labor during the previous legislative session.

“I believe that among the foundational goals held by all government officials should be to ensure an efficient, responsible government,” said Uecker. “I’m looking forward to doing just that as the Vice Chairman of the Government Oversight and Reform Committee.”

In addition to his Vice Chairmanship, Senator Uecker will also serve as a member of the Senate Civil Justice, Commerce and Labor, Energy and Natural Resources, Public Utilities, and Workforce and Economic Development Committees, as well as a member of the Senate Finance Subcommittee on Education.
