State Senator Joe Uecker (R-Miami Township)
COLUMBUS—Senate President Larry Obhof (R-Medina) recently appointed Senator Joe Uecker (R-Miami Township) as Chairman of the Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review (JCARR). 

"Strengthening efficiency and transparency is crucial for the State's rule making process," said Uecker. "I look forward to taking on this new role to ensure that rules are filed in a timely and fair manner and are within proper statutory authority." 

JCARR reviews proposed new, amended, and rescinded rules from over 110 agencies to ensure they do not exceed their rule-making authority granted to them by the General Assembly. The committee was created in 1977, and seats five State Representatives and five State Senators.

Senator Uecker previously served both as chair and vice-chair of the committee.
