COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Ohio Legislature has launched a new website that allows the public to more easily follow the thousands of state rules written each year.

RuleWatch Ohio was launched Monday by members of the Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review, or JCARR.

The lawmakers say the site makes it easier for the public to provide feedback on how proposed rules might affect their lives, communities or businesses. With a free account, RuleWatch Ohio users can track specific rules or interest areas and receive email alerts when there's activity. It replaces a system that required searching weekly filings and other reports.

JCARR reviews roughly 9,000 rule actions each year for 120 agencies. State rules affect topics such as food safety, energy production, public education, hunting, agriculture and ownership of exotic pets.
