News: Troubled Waters, Columbus Dispatch Notes:The recent water contamination in West Virginia should lead Ohio’s leaders to ask how we can prevent similar harms here. With the increase fracking activity in Ohio, we need appropriate government regulations and resources for prevention, remedying, and improving our communities in the event of a tragedy. HB 375 – a proposed severance tax increase – currently doesn’t account for long term impacts and doesn’t generate enough revenue to invest for the long term security of impacted communities. The Ohio House Ways & Means Committee should amend this legislation to generate enough revenue to oversee the proper regulation of the industry and long term impacts of drilling activity.
