Bill Would Prohibit Local Energy Bans
This week, Rep. Al Cutrona (R-Canfield) gave sponsor testimony on House Bill 192, which would prevent local governments from prohibiting or limiting:
- the use of fossil fuels for electricity generation; and
- the construction or use of a pipeline to transport oil or gas.
Rep. Cutrona said the bill is intended “to prevent possible rate increases for those throughout the state and the Mahoning Valley.” 3/18/2021
