Urges passage of HB 304 into law
COLUMBUS--State Representative Nickie J. Antonio (D-Lakewood) released this statement as Governor Kasich is set to sign an executive order banning drilling in Lake Erie today:
"While I applaud Gov. Kasich for issuing this executive order which bans drilling in Lake Erie, Ohio needs a long term solution.
A law on the books would provide long term protection to the region's most precious resource. Passage of HB 304 that I introduced last July would also prohibit drilling in Lake Erie.
It is imperative that we protect Ohio's largest source of freshwater for our children and grandchildren, our economy, and our environment."
