Stop Asian Carp Before It’s Too Late!

Asian Carp Great LakesThe Great Lakes are a national treasure, and economically support a $7 billion fishing industry, $16 billion boating industry, and 1.5 million jobs. The introduction of Asian carp and other species puts the well-being of our communities, wildlife, and waters at risk.

 

Tell the US Army Corps to prevent Asian Carp from destroying our Great Lakes!

Transportation

As energy prices remain high and our state’s economy continues to sag, Ohio needs clean, green, and economically viable transportation options more than ever. Our state is the fourth largest emitter of greenhouse gases, and the transportation sector produces about one-third of this pollution. Forced reliance on the automobile puts greater financial stress on Ohio families, increases oil dependence, damages the environment, harms public health, and limits the mobility of citizens, particularly seniors, students, the disadvantaged, and the disabled. Meanwhile, Ohio spends less than 1% of its transportation dollars on public transit. Visit our Transportation Committee page to learn more about our efforts and how to get involved.
