State Senator Bill Seitz (R-Cincinnati) introduced a bill to amend the filing requirements for applicants seeking certification from the Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB). The bill, SB 297, adds county commissioners, and the trustees and residents of the township(s) in which an energy project would be located to the list of parties to be notified of an OPSB application. Current law requires applicants to notify the chief executive officers and residents of affected municipal corporations and counties, without specifying precisely which county officials and residents should receive the notice.
