The Legislative Services Office acts as the primary point of contact between the Department of Development/ Development Services Agency and the General Assembly. The office directs and coordinates legislative issues for the Department of Development/DSA and promotes the department's legislative agenda. We work to build and maintain productive relationships with members of the Ohio General Assembly, Ohio's congressional delegation, and their staffs. The Legislative Services Office works closely with the Governor's Office regarding legislative, and budget actions impacting the agency. The office facilitates the dissemination of information regarding legislative committee assignments, geographic district location, bill status reports, hearing schedules, as well as obtaining copies of bills and analyses. We formulate and respond to policy issues as they directly relate to legislation, assist with constituent issues, provide information on a timely basis, and keep the legislators informed of any loans, grants, or projects within their districts.
