Just because gas prices have dropped doesn’t mean Ohio should build more highways. Recently, 700 Sierra Club members commented on the Ohio Department of Transportation’s (ODOT) 2014 Statewide Transit Needs Study. Now we have the opportunity to weigh in on the specific projects that ODOT will fund in 2015-2018.
We hope you can join the Sierra Club for our annual Chapter Retreat. As one of the largest and most influential environmental organizations in the state, this is the time each year where we celebrate our victories, renew our spirits, and make our plans the year ahead. All are welcome, and meals will be provided for members who register.
Strong Watchdog Efforts Needed After Issue 2 Passage
November 9th, 2009
In the aftermath of the November election, the Sierra Club and Ohio ACT coalition members agree that citizen involvement and oversight is needed to address the new Livestock Care Standards Board. Issue 2 opponents are reconvening to determine the next steps moving forward. We hope to insert a sense of balance on this board, which was largely created by agribusiness interests. Please stay tuned for more information and watch for opportunities to get involved.
