Statement on House Bill 6 Next Steps

Despite extensive efforts to improve House Bill 6 (HB 6) throughout the legislative process, the bill was passed by the Ohio House of Representatives and signed by Gov. DeWine on July 23.

In response, the following quote can be attributed in full or part to Trish Demeter, Ohio Environmental Council Action Fund advocate:

“The Ohio Environmental Council Action Fund remains opposed to House Bill 6 because it is bad for Ohio’s health and environment. We are assessing all options to get Ohio back on the right track. At this time we are not involved in referendum efforts, but we are not ruling that out as a potential option.”
