The Ohio Department of Agriculture is accepting comments regarding the rules found in Chapter 901-14-01 of the Ohio Administrative Code. The rules in this package have been reviewed pursuant to Chapter 119 of the Revised Code and are being proposed as follows. The comment period will remain open through July 6, 2018. Comments may be emailed to eComments@agri.ohio.gov or mailed to Legal Section, Ohio Department of Agriculture, 8995 E. Main St., Reynoldsburg, Ohio 43068.
Pursuant to Ohio Revised Code 901.42, the Ohio Department of Agriculture shall adopt rules to establish procedures for the allocation of and distribution of financial assistance for livestock exhibitions at the Ohio exposition center. Ohio Administrative Code 901-14-01 sets forth these procedures. The rules are being proposed as not requiring amendment.
There have been no funds appropriated to the Department for these claims in several years. However, due to the continued existence of Revised Code section 901.42, the Department is required to maintain these administrative rules.
