(A) Except as otherwise provided in the Revised Code, the governor may, by executive
order, designate or create such agency, commission, or advisory body, subject to his
jurisdiction or otherwise, as a law or regulation of the United States may require
to qualify the state, a department or agency thereof, or a unit of local government
to participate in a federal program or activity specified in the executive order. The governor may appoint the administrator of such agency or the members of such
commission or advisory body and grant to it such rank in state government and such
powers as a federal law or regulation may require. Any executive order issued pursuant to this section shall specify its expiration
date, which shall not be later than three years after its date of issuance, subject
to earlier revocation by the governor. The governor shall transmit to the speaker of the house of representatives and the
president of the senate a copy of each such executive order upon its issuance and
shall deposit the original with the secretary of state.
(B) The governor may act for the state in making any application, certification, designation,
identification, determination, assurance, or commitment that a law or regulation of
the United States requires to be made by the governor to qualify the state, a department
or agency thereof, or a unit of local government to receive complete or partial federal
funding of a federal program, participation in which is authorized by Ohio law or
by a governor's executive order issued pursuant to section 107.17 of the Revised Code.
