OMA Testifies in Support of Bill That Secures Natural Gas Access

This week the OMA went on record with the Senate Energy and Public Utilities Committee chairman in support of House Bill 201, a bill that prohibits local governments from banning or blocking consumers from obtaining natural gas hookups.

The OMA worked with the bill sponsors and other interested parties to ensure that the intent of the bill matched its language. OMA’s Rob Brundrett wrote: “We believe that the current version of HB 201 helps ensure Ohio’s manufacturers will continue to have access to reliable and economical energy sources.” The bill is expected to move before the end of the summer. 5/27/2021
