The ORDC was established in 1995 under Ohio Revised Code Section 4981 to address all non-regulatory matters related to rail transportation in Ohio.
The Commission itself consists of 15 members: four non-voting legislative representatives from the House and Senate and eleven voting members. Seven of the voting members, including the Chairman, are appointed by the Governor; the Speaker of the House and the Senate President each appoint one voting member, and the directors of Transportation and the Development Services Agency serve on the board. All voting members serve six-year terms.
