COLUMBUS – Ohio House Speaker Bob Cupp (R-Lima) today appointed State Rep. Jon Cross (R-Kenton) as Chair of the Finance Subcommittee on Higher Education for the 134th General Assembly.

It’s very important that we get Ohioans back to work, open up job opportunities, and advance career pathways by collaborating with our higher education institutions.”
