COLUMBUS, OH - In response to Governor Kasich’s veto of HB 554 today, the Ohio Environmental Council Action Fund issued the following statement by President Heather Taylor-Miesle.
“I applaud Gov. Kasich for showing true leadership and vetoing this bill. HB 554 is a sloppy piece of legislation that could increase electric bills and clog our air with pollution while hampering innovation and job growth. We urge legislators to follow Gov. Kasich’s lead and allow Ohio’s clean energy potential to be unleashed.
