The Ohio Department of Insurance encourages involvement by the public in all areas of insurance regulation. Public information sessions and public hearings held allow citizens to become participants in the department’s rule-making process. A public hearing is your opportunity to comment for the administrative record. The record is included in the information the department uses when deciding whether to change or adopt a rule.
At the Hearing
Testimony and Comments
At the hearing, a court reporter records oral comments. Citizens who do not wish to offer oral testimony are encouraged to submit their comments in writing. Written and oral comments received during the public comment period receive equal consideration.
What ODI Can and Cannot Do
The department attempts to respond to every citizen’s concern within its authority, and seeks to refer other concerns to government agencies which may have jurisdiction over such concerns.
However, the department does not have unlimited authority to address every public concern relating to a rule. Some issues may by under the jurisdiction of federal, local, or other state agencies.
