Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine rejected a revised petition (read about the previous petition in our November 2013 blog post) asking the state to invest $1.3 billion in clean-energy projects because “petitioners did not collect enough valid signatures,” according to Cleveland.com. The proposal called for the $1.3 billion to be spent on geothermal, wind, and solar energy research, development, and infrastructure over a 10-year period. The Columbus Dispatch reports that under the proposed initiative, “Ohio would be severely limited in how much it could control or influence the selection of projects and investments.” For more, read the full Dispatch and Cleveland.com stories, as well as the full text of the proposed amendment.
