The legal section and the assistant attorney general
work with department administrators to take appropriate legal
action against those who do not comply with Ohio's agricultural
laws and regulations and work with the director and division
chiefs in formulating new and changing regulations.
The Office of Legislative Affairs helps the Ohio General Assembly
keep up to date with the state's dynamic agriculture and food
industry. The office works with consumer groups, industry
representatives, and legislators to help with needed legislation.
The legal section cannot provide
legal advice, or a legal opinion regarding your
situation. When possible, we will refer you to the law that
may be pertinent to your inquiry. However, the legal section
represents the Department of Agriculture and it would be a conflict
of interest for staff to provide you specific advice or opinion.
