In June 2014, Governor Kasich signed into law a bill that guts Ohio’s clean energy and efficiency standards. Passing this new law was not enough for Ohio’s utilities, though.
Now, Ohio’s largest electric utilities, AEP, Duke, and FirstEnergy are seeking to keep a number of Ohio’s oldest and dirtiest power plants open for years to come.
And they want you and me to pay for it.

The Ohio Department of Transportation is hosting interactive workshops to gather ideas for Ohio’s public transportation future. The first workshop will be on Monday October 25 at 5:30pm in Columbus. Other workshops include Cincinnati-Oct. 26, Bowling Green-Oct. 27, Portsmouth-Oct. 28, Cleveland-Nov. 3, Youngstown-Nov. 4, Cambridge-Nov. 9, and Athens-Nov. 10 all starting at 5:30pm. Public transportation will play a critical role in helping reduce our emissions, reduce traffic congestion on our roadways, and will create jobs putting Ohioans back to work. Ridership rates have increased with few options available to move people. Ohio is ranked 12th in the nation for transit ridership rates with 7 major metropolitan areas–all with public transit systems to move people. The workshop will attempt to answer what Ohio’s future transportation system will look like by engaging audience members in discussion. Other goals of the workshop will be to answer where our transportation system should go, and also which investments will keep and bring in new jobs to Ohio as well. Please come out to share your thoughts and ideas to help make Ohio a more viable and competitive state, while building an efficient and effective transportation network!
