The State Government Committee is a standing committee of the Ohio House of Representatives. In 2015, this committee was created out of the State and Local Government Committee.

Per the House Rules, committees of the Ohio House of Representatives are appointed by the Speaker of the House. The rules do not specify when or how often committees are assigned. The Minority Leader can recommend minority membership and a ranking minority member for each committee.[1] The Speaker shall assign the chairmen of each standing committee.[2] The first named member of any committee or subcommittee shall be the chairman, and the second named member shall be the vice-chair.[3] Any vacancies that have occurred in any committees or subcommittees after members have been appointed will be filled by the Speaker.[4] The Speaker, President Pro Tempore and the Minority Leader are considered to be nonvoting members on all standing committees and are not counted in determing quorum, except in the committees where they are regular members. At the Minority Leader's request, the Assistant Minority Leader can become a nonvoting member of a committee in the Minority Leader's absence.[5]
