Ohio AG Releases Final Rule Changes for Nonprofits

Attorney General Jim Petro backed off most of his earlier proposed rule changes for Ohio’s nonprofits, filing a third draft with the Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review last week. He will hold a public hearing on the rules on Tuesday, October 10 in Columbus.

In addition to proposing an 11-member Charitable Advisory Council (CAC) in the rules, Petro has created it ad hoc, so that it can begin work later this month. The council members are representatives from the following organizations: Ohio Grantmakers Forum, Ohio Association of Nonprofit Organizations, Center for Nonprofit Excellence, Better Business Bureau, Ohio Society of CPAs, United Way, Association of Ohio Philanthropic Homes, Ohio Hospital Association, AARP Ohio and two attorneys with expertise in nonprofit law.
