Former OH treasurer named to House financial panel

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio's former treasurer has landed a key position overseeing proposed financial legislation in the Ohio House.

Columbus Democrat Kevin Boyce will serve as ranking Democrat on the House Financial Institutions, Housing and Urban Development Committee for the two-year session.

Boyce lost his state office to Republican Josh Mandel in 2010.

Last year, Boyce was appointed to fill a House vacancy created after ex-state Rep. Carlton Weddington of Columbus resigned amid a bribery investigation. Weddington has since gone to prison.

Boyce was retained this fall.

He also was appointed to two other committees.
