CU supporter to chair Ohio Senate Finance Committee
COLUMBUS, Ohio (1/11/13)--Ohio State Sen. Scott Oelslager (R-Canton), a friend of credit unions, has been named chairman of that chamber's Finance Committee, according to the Ohio Credit Union League.

The Finance Committee leads the Senate's role in the state's biennial budget process.

Oelslager was a joint sponsor of past legislation to grant credit unions access to public funds, said the league (eLumination Newsletter Jan. 9).

Sens. Jim Hughes (R-Columbus) and Kevin Bacon (R-Columbus) will lead the Senate Insurance and Financial Institutions Committee, which will preside over most legislation relating to financial services, including banking and credit union issues.

Hughes and Bacon have good relationships with credit unions and have always been willing to meet and discuss issues, the league said.

State Sens. Tim Schaffer (R-Lancaster) and Bob Peterson (R-Sabina) will preside over the state's Ways and Means Committee, which the league expects will review the state's sales and use tax exceptions.  Schaffer and Peterson also have been willing to meet with credit union leaders. They have worked on issues of interest to credit unions, but neither have taken a position on major issues specifically affecting credit unions, said the league.
