Laws of Ohio, a publication of the Secretary of State's office issued at the end of each General Assembly, is the only official publication of the enactments of the General Assembly. (Enactments are the bills passed by the Senate and House and sent to the Governor for his signature or veto.) This publication contains all the laws passed by the General Assembly, including the ones vetoed by the Governor, as well as the uncodified laws (those laws which are not permanent in nature and not codified in the Revised Code.) The acts filed with the Secretary of State's office are the actual statutory law of Ohio. The Ohio Revised Code, whether in book for or on-line is only a reference and not the official record. For more information on the Laws of Ohio, contact the Secretary of State's office.
