Weather leads Ohio Senate panel to cancel meeting

Associated Press

COLUMBUS: Cold weather has led one Ohio Senate panel to cancel its meeting, while another committee plans to hold an informal hearing.

The schedule changes for Tuesday come as Ohio experiences frigid temperatures and significantly below-zero wind chills that prompted some schools and universities around the state to cancel classes for the day.

Senate spokesman John McClelland says a Senate Reference Committee meeting has been canceled and rescheduled for Wednesday afternoon. A hearing by the Senate Finance Committee has been deemed informal, meaning that attendance won’t be taken.

A House spokesman said a committee on opiate addiction treatment still planned to meet Tuesday afternoon to hear testimony on three bills.

State lawmakers also have hearings scheduled for Wednesday. Their first voting sessions of the year are planned for next week.
