Procedures for Public Comment

Members of the public may attend meetings of the Ohio Attorney General’s Elder Abuse Commission (Commission) and can provide information or make comment about items of public interest.

The Commission serves as an advisory organization established to advocate on elder-abuse issues. The Commission neither regulates nor legislates Ohio elder abuse issues and has no regulatory control or oversight of any profession, board, department agency or entity, public or private. Pursuant to ORC 5101.741, the Commission is a forum for policy discussion and issue development and seeks to bring before the public and other Ohio entities issues of interest or concern related to elder abuse.

The Commission meetings are open to the public and members of the public may speak during the “Public Comment” portion of the meeting. The comments should be relevant to the Commission’s activities.
