LaTourette No, Ryan Yes To Ohio Jobs
Congress has taken a historic step towards a clean energy economy by passing the American Clean Energy and Security Act (H.R. 2454).
17th Ohio District Congressman Tim Ryan (D) voted in favor of the bill while 14th Ohio District Congressman Steve LaTourette (R) voted against it.
Tho the major shift in our energy policy, coupled with the dire predictions of the scientific community regarding “global warming” demand we do more, this is definitely a step in the right direction.
Amanda Moore, Environment Ohio, stated that,
The bill (H.R. 2454) will bolster over 440 businesses in Ohio that are already involved in the green industry.
It would appear that the young Congressman from the Mahoning Valley is progressive and far sighted enough to see the advantages of this bill to his constituants and District, where as the Congressman of “No” is stuck in the politics of same old, same old and beholding to the past and not the future for those who live in the 14th District.
