Legislative Notes


This section of notes continues the practice of the University of Dayton Law Review of providing analyses of selected recent enactments by the Ohio General Assembly. In the past these notes have been published once a year. Current plans, however, call for the inclusion of legislation notes in all future issues of the Review.

The University of Dayton Law Review extends its sincere appreciation to the officers and staff of the Ohio Legislative Service Commission and to the many others who provide valuable information and assistance to the authors of these notes. Without the aid of these individuals the continuation of this project would not be possible.

The following bills are analysed in this issue:

  • S.B. 297: Procedural Changes in the Provisions for Civil Commitment and Release Of Persons Found Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity.
  • S.B. 284: An Amendment to Ohio’s Environmental Protection Verified Complaint Law
