Ohio Legislative History: General Assembly Video

Video of the Ohio General Assembly's Senate and House proceedings are archived by date on The Ohio Channel. So how do you find video related to a specific bill?

Using the search features of the legislature's website, find the page devoted to your bill (e.g., the page for the pending bill regarding gift cards), look for a reference to the Status Report of Legislation along the left side of the page. The Status Report reveals which dates the bill was considered in the Senate and House.

Then return to the video collection on The Ohio Channel and browse the video collections for the date the bill was considered. For each day, the videos are broken down by subject, such as bill number.
