Attorney General DeWine acts quickly on IO recommendations

In an interview yesterday with the Associated Press, Ohio’s Attorney General, Mike DeWine, indicated that his office has concluded that Ohio’s oil and gas laws are currently inadequate to protect landowners and the environment. DeWine proposed three changes to Ohio law, two of which are completely harmonious with a major report on fracking released by Innovation Ohio six days earlier. We applaud the AG’s action on behalf of Ohioans, and urge Governor Kasich and the Ohio General Assembly to follow suit.
