Ohio Bills and Code Alerts

We can help you with automated updates for the topic you need to track. Provide a member of our reference staff with an Ohio RC section or a particular bill and we’ll set up alerts to send you via email each time a development occurs. We can also pull the bill status or testimony for you. It’s easy to get documents like opinions from the Ethics Commission, the AG, the Civil Rights Commission, etc. If you’re interested in Ohio statehouse happenings, let’s see what we can do to help.

Google Alerts

It's easy to set up Google Alerts and we'd be happy to do it for you or offer guidance.  Whether you want to watch for mentions of a topic or organization or even yourself, we can craft the search and start up your alerts.  You will receive updates by email whenever your Google search finds something for you. 

Ohio Cases
