A BILL
To enact section 317.06 of the Revised Code to require county recorders to complete continuing education requirements.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF OHIO:
Section 1. That section 317.06 of the Revised Code be enacted to read as follows:
Sec. 317.06.  (A) Each county recorder who is newly elected to a full term of office shall attend and successfully complete at least fifteen hours of continuing education courses during the first year of the recorder's term of office and complete at least another eight hours of such courses each year of the remaining term. Each county recorder who is elected to a subsequent term of office shall attend and successfully complete at least eight hours of such courses in each year of any subsequent term of office. To be counted toward the continuing education hours required by this section, a course must be approved by the Ohio recorders' association. Any county recorder who teaches an approved course shall be entitled to credit for the course in the same manner as if the county recorder had attended the course.
The Ohio recorders' association shall record and, upon request, verify the completion of required course work for each county recorder and issue a statement to each county recorder of the number of hours of continuing education the county recorder has successfully completed. Each year the association shall send a list of the continuing education courses, and the number of hours each county recorder has successfully completed, to the auditor of state and shall provide a copy of this list to any other individual who requests it.
The association shall issue a "failure to complete notice" to any county recorder required to complete continuing education courses under this section who fails to successfully complete at least fifteen hours of continuing education courses during the first year of the county recorder's first term of office or to complete a total of at least thirty-nine hours of such courses, including the fifteen hours completed in the first year of the first term, by the end of that term. The association shall issue a "failure to complete notice" to any county recorder required to complete continuing education courses under this section who fails to successfully complete at least eight hours of continuing education courses each year of any subsequent term of office or to complete a total of at least thirty-two hours of such courses, by the end of that subsequent term. This notice is for informational purposes only and does not affect any individual's ability to hold the office of county recorder.
(B) Each board of county commissioners shall approve, from money appropriated to the county recorder, a reasonable amount requested by the county recorder of its county to cover the costs the county recorder must incur to meet the requirements of division (A) of this section, including registration fees, lodging and meal expenses, and travel expenses.
