Statement from the OEC Action Fund on VP Pence Visit to Columbus

Columbus, Ohio -- The following statement can be attributed to Trish Demeter, Vice President of Energy Policy for the Ohio Environmental Council Action Fund:

“Vice President Pence’s visit to Columbus in order to speak to the Ohio Oil and Gas Association was a missed opportunity to highlight the great progress to be made in capturing methane to better protect our children.

“In discussing innovation in the oil and gas sector, the Vice President should work with his industry partners to push for continued protections against unnecessary methane releases, in order to save money, and protect the air we all breathe.”
