Democratic representatives Mike Foley (D-Cleveland) and Dan Ramos (D-Lorain) plan to introduce a bill that would repeal the recently enacted Senate Bill 310 (SB 310), citing a green jobs report that shows Ohio has 31,322 renewable energy jobs, not the 25,000 jobs that were quoted as part of the discussion of SB 310, according to a recent Hannah Report. In a recent press call, Foley charged that “Gov. John Kasich’s administration suppressed the results” of the jobs report that was finalized in February 2013 until it was uncovered this month by a records request from The Columbus Dispatch. Ramos “said the suppression of the report dashed opportunities for an open and honest discussion,” and that elected officials were told “that this was not a large sector of our economy when it was.” Both Foley and Ramos expressed concern about how SB 310 limits environmental progress in Ohio. “We plan to introduce a bill that will repeal SB310 that will restore energy efficiency standards [and] raise our renewable portfolio by half of a percent so we can get Ohio back on track to what we once were…a leader in sustainability.”
