45 CFR 1321.7 says, "The Older Americans Act intends that the State agency on aging shall be the leader relative to all aging issues on behalf of all older persons in the State. This means that the State agency shall proactively carry out a wide range of functions related to advocacy, planning, coordination, interagency linkages, information sharing, brokering, monitoring and evaluation, designed to lead to the development or enhancement of comprehensive and coordinated community based systems in, or serving, communities throughout the State. These systems shall be designed to assist older persons in leading independent, meaningful and dignified lives in their own homes and communities as long as possible."

R.C. §173.01  requires any state agency filing a rule proposal with the Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review (JCARR) to notify ODA of the proposal if it would primarily affect older Ohioans. The section also establishes a process for ODA to suggest ways to improve such a rule proposal. (Cf., 45 CFR 1321.13)

R.C. §3923.50 requires the Ohio Department of Insurance to consult with ODA on rule proposals that it files with JCARR regarding the Ohio Long-Term Care Insurance Program.

Additionally, R.C. §5162.66 requires the Ohio Department of Medicaid to consult with ODA on rule proposals that it files with JCARR regarding the Resident Protection Fund.

ODA intends to feature certain state and federal rules of interest below, as well as executive orders. ODA does not intend to feature every rule or executive order of interest below.
